About your maroon lid food scraps bin collection day

We'll deliver your kitchen caddy, compostable caddy liner bags, and maroon lid food scraps bin to your house or apartment building in July, just before the trial starts. 

The collection service for the food scraps recycling trial will start from 29 July 2019.

We'll collect your maroon lid bin once a week if you live in a house and twice a week if you live in an apartment building.

To find your collection day, look up your property type and suburb in the table below.

Please put your maroon lid food scraps bins out the night before your collection day and bring them back in after they have been emptied.

If you live in an apartment where your bins are managed by the building, they will also put out the maroon lid food scraps bin for collection.

Bin not collected or damaged?

If for some reason your food scraps bin was not collected or is damaged, please phone our customer service team on 02 9265 9333 to arrange collection or bin repair.
