Council provides each residential property with a domestic waste service. This service includes the use of a garbage bin (red lid), a recycling bin (yellow lid), a green waste bin (green lid) and two kerbside collections per year.

Bin collection days vary from Monday to Friday depending on which suburb you live in. To identify which waste collection service applies to your property or which zone your property is located in, please search for your address in Council’s Neighbourhood Maps.

A User Guide has been developed if you require further assistance with Council’s Neighbourhood Maps.

Kerbside Clean Up Collection Service

Residents in the Georges River Council local government area are offered two kerbside clean up collection services per year.

Residents within the former Kogarah Council receive two (2) scheduled clean up collections while residents of the former Hurstville receive two (2) pre booked clean up collections. 
Council considered a review of these arrangements and resolved, due to the excessive financial cost of making changes to retain the existing arrangements until the current collection contract expires in February 2023.

Council staff will further review the current clean-up services and provide options for the new collection contract in 2023.  If in the meantime, should you require an additional collection, please contact SUEZ the waste contractors on 1800 079 390 to request a quote for the removal of your items.

For kerbside clean up dates search your address in Neighbourhood Maps or to book your next clean up contact the Waste Hotline on 1800 079 390.

To find out what items are acceptable and other kerbside clean up collection service requirements, please refer to Council's Kerbside Clean Up Collection Service information.
