New waste service

The City's waste services include the collection of rubbish (red lid), recycling (yellow lid) and garden organics (green lid).

Rubbish and recycling bins

If you need to start or add a new rubbish or recycling service for your property or make changes to an existing rubbish service, you can complete the residential waste service application form. Then email the form, or print it and lodge it in person at one of our customer service centres.

Only ratepayers, property owners or managing agents (in houses), or building or strata managers (on behalf of an apartment block) can request these changes as they relate to the domestic waste charge on rates notices. 

Garden organics bin

To start a garden organics service, which is collected every fortnight, you can order a free green lid bin for your home. If you live in an apartment, check with your strata manager first if a garden organics bin can be ordered.

Changing the size of your rubbish bin

Changing the size of your rubbish (red lid) bin means changing your service. The domestic waste charge you pay depends on the size of your bin and the frequency of service. Before asking for a bigger rubbish (red lid) bin, check out our guides to reducing waste and recycling more.

If you're already doing all you can and want a smaller red lid bin or yellow lid bin, that's great. However, it's really important to choose the right sized bin because we can't collect any extra rubbish or recycling you put out. Additional bags of rubbish left out on the kerb are considered to be illegally dumped and can attract hefty fines.

Need more recycling or garden organics bins?

You can order additional recycling bins or garden organics bins free.
