Waste and Recycling

We provide each residential property with a domestic waste service. This service includes the use of a garbage bin, a recycling bin, a green waste bin 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, please search for your address in Council’s Neighbourhood Maps.

Container Deposit Scheme Update

The implementation date for the NSW 10 cent container deposit scheme has been extended by five months following requests from environment groups and industry bodies. The container deposit scheme will now be rolled out from 1 December 2017 in order to ensure maximum possible state-wide coverage from day one.

Under the scheme, people in NSW will be able to return most empty beverage containers between 150 ml and three litres to collection points for a 10 cent refund. The container deposit scheme will give people a financial incentive to do the right thing and recycle drink containers to significantly reduce the estimated 160 million drink containers littered every year.

More information is available on the Environmental Protection Authority website
