Your Waste Service

Residents living in units, townhouses or villas have shared or individual bin services depending on the requirements of each development.

If you need extra bins or extra collections please arrange this through the Owners Corporation.

For units, townhouses or villas with a bin bay storage area, the contractor may collect bins from the storage area and return the emptied bins for you.

This service does not apply where prior arrangements exist for caretakers to place the bins at the kerbside.

Council provides a garden organics service to many properties throughout the Shire. If garden organics bins are not provided, requests may be made via the Owners Corporation.

A confirmation letter, with details of the household kerbside clean-up collection will be sent to each unit, townhouse or villa.
