Be Wheelie Wise – Bin Collection Advice

By February 12, 2024February 22nd, 2024No Comments

Council collects an average of 106 tonnes of kerbside waste across the Shire per week. You can help us by remembering to be Wheelie Wise

  • Place your bin on the kerb the night before collection day
  • Ensure your bin is accessible to the waste truck
  • Keep the weight of your bin less than 70kg
  • Close the lid of your bin
  • Keep at least one metre of space between each bin on the kerb
  • Ensure your rubbish is contained in the bin and does not fall onto the ground when tipped into the truck

Collection times can differ each week, please ensure your bin is placed on the kerb the night before your collection day.
