Residents and businesses on the kerbside collection service are informed that Council will be implementing changes to the service in August this year. Not in June/July as previously advised.

The changes will be a fortnightly collection service for all collections and the replacement of the current 140lt wheelie bin (for general waste) and the replacement of the 55lt crate (for recycling) with two (2) new 240lt wheelie bins. All current bins and crates will be collected by Council and replaced with the new 240lt bins. For residents already on the fortnightly collection service, your current 240lt bin will also be replaced with a new 240lt bin.

Council will mail all households and businesses on the kerbside collection service with the new fortnightly collection times and the dates for replacing the existing bins and crates. Click on the link below for full details of changes including replacement dates for old crates and bins.
