How to use the kerbside collection system:
  • There should only ever be a maximum of two (2) bins out on any given collection day;

  • Put the bins out by 6.00 am on the day of pick up and bring them back in within 24 hours of pick up;

  • Bins are required to be one (1) metre apart where possible and one (1) metre from surrounding objects (such as poles, trees, cars, etc.) with plenty of clearance from overhead branches;

  • Don’t put the bins behind parked cars;

  • Place the right material in the right bin; and

  • Ensure your bin is not packed too tightly and the bin lid is closed.

Kerbside bins
Bins may not be collected for the following reasons:
  • Excessively contaminated with materials that should not be placed in that bin;

  • Excessive weight – bins that exceed 70 kg in weight will not be collected.

Those bins found to contain contaminants will not be emptied and a sticker placed on the bin to inform residents and the contaminants will need to be removed from the bin before the next collection. Households who continue to present their bins with contamination will be suspended from the kerbside waste collection service for 3 months. If residents find they have a sticker on their bin they are encouraged to refer to their Waste Calendar(2845 kb) to determine their offending material.

Lost or Stolen bins

If your bin is lost or stolen you can apply for a new bin to be issued. In order to apply for a new bin please download a Statutory Declaration Form and return to your nearest Watte 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 contact Council’s Wasteline on 8724 8121 for collection enquiries – including missed collections, damaged, missing or stolen bins or conduct and courtesy of vehicle drivers.
