We collect household and commercial waste on a weekly basis. The council issues each rateable property with one bin for general waste, one recycling bin and one green waste bin. You can find out when your waste will be collected next by using the waste collection search.

Generally, we do not issue bins for vacant blocks but exceptions can be made if the activities carried out on the block generate waste for collection.

Bins must be out by 6am on the day of collection or the night before. The waste collection service runs as usual on most public holidays except for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

For items that should not be placed in general waste and landfill, we offer a range of services for waste removal and recycling. These include e-waste recycling, recycling of fluorescent tubes and energy saving globes, green waste and hard waste collections, mobile phone and battery recycling, and motor oil recycling.

We have six rubbish dumps in our region at Lonsdale, Seaford Heights and Maslin Beach.
