To help Council maintain a quality service, residents are asked to position their bin correctly for the automatic handling operation (e.g. the handle and wheels of the bin are closest to your house, one metre away from obstacles). Bin should be out ready for collection at 6.00am of the morning of service day and then returned to your yard prior to 6.00pm on the same day. Bins not out by this time may not be collected.
Large bulky items that do not permit the bin lid to close or excessively heavy items should not be placed in the bin as it may not be serviced. Bins that become split and cracked may also not be serviced.
Wheelie bins can be purchased from Council for $80.00. Bins must be paid for prior to delivery. Wheelie bins have a shelf life of approximately 7 years, after this time they will begin to crack, split and become damaged. Damaged wheelie bins may not be serviced and customers will receive a letter in writing to replace their bin.
You can extend the life of your bin by storing it out of direct sunlight – in a carport etc, regularly washing the inside of the bin and by not over loading it. Wheelie bins are designed to take approximately 6 bags of household rubbish, loading the bins with lawn clippings, building off cuts etc, will severely shorten the lifespan of your bin.
