A kerbside waste and recycling collection service is provided to residential, commercial and industrial properties within township areas.
The service may include:
This service is paid for by the ratepayer, with a separate charge on their Council rates notice. Different charges apply for the 2-bin (red & yellow bins) and 3-bin (red, yellow & green bins) service .
For further information on each of the kerbside collection streams follow the links below:
Each year, Council sends a kerbside collection calendar to residents showing the alternate weeks for recycling and green waste.
Select a map below to find out your collection day and whether you are in a collection zone.
There are a number of reasons why a bin may not be emptied:
If the wrong material is placed in a bin, the bin may not be emptied and a sticker will be placed on the bin to inform the resident. The contamination will need to be removed from the bin before the next collection.
Households who continue to present their bins with contamination may receive a letter from Council and can be suspended from the kerbside waste collection service for 3 months. Information about acceptable waste can be found above.
If your bin is lost or stolen you can apply for a new bin to be issued. Charges may apply. In order to apply for a new bin please download a Statutory Declaration Form and return to your nearest Wattle Range Council Office.
All bins are the property of Council and are required to be left at the property if you relocate or sell your home. Please place your bins in a secure location when you relocate to prevent them from being stolen.
