About your maroon lid food scraps bin collection day

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. Phase 2 will see the trial expanded to more suburbs and this table will be updated before the service starts.

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 your food scraps bin wasn't collected or is damaged, please call us on 02 9265 9333 or fill in this form to arrange collection or bin repair.

Note: Prior to the start of phase 2, this table will be updated to include collection days for all new suburbs involved in the trial expansion.
