Bin placement

To assist us in servicing your bins please:

• Place bins out by 6am on the day of collection

• Place bins near to the kerb with handles facing towards your property

• Place bins at least 50cm apart from each other and 1m from trees or other obstructions to allow access for the waste truck arm

• Do not overfill your bin – the trucks cannot lift bins weighing over 70kg

• Ensure bin lids are closed so your waste does not blow away

• Do not place hot ash, liquids, oil, paint or solvents in your bins as they can damage bins, trucks and the environment

• Return bins to your property as soon as possible
