Residential property owners have the choice of either an 80 litre or a 120 litre red lid garbage bin. Additional garbage bins are also available. To view bin prices, please visit order new bins.

Please check what you can put in your recycle bin and your garden bin before placing it in the red lid garbage bin. Rubbish items placed in the garbage bin are taken to landfill for disposal, and not recycled. Please note the hydraulic arm on our trucks cannot collect bins that are heavier than 75kg.
