Bins provided by the Council
Three bin system
The Council provides all households with the following three bins and a kitchen organics basket:
- general waste to landfill bin (red lid)
- co-mingled recycling for reuse bin (yellow lid)
- food and garden organics bin (green lid).
These bins are provided to assist you to correctly separate recyclable and organic material from general waste that goes to landfill.
Do not overfill your bin as overfilling your bin makes pick-up difficult and can cause litter to spill onto the street and may not be emptied.
The maximum weight the truck arm can lift (the lifting capacity of the truck) is 60kg. If a bin weighs more than 60kg when filled, the bin may not be emptied.
Kitchen organics basket
The Council provides residential properties with a free kitchen caddy and annual supply of compostable bags to make it easy to compost food waste through the green bin.
If you are a new resident and your house does not have a kitchen organics basket, you can collect one at the Norwood Town Hall or any of our three libraries.
Please note: The kitchen organics basket is to remain at your property. If you move house, leave the basket and bags at the property for the next occupant to use.

Information for commercial, community and not-for-profit properties
Waste and recycling services for businesses
The Council provides a kerbside bin collection service to commercial, community and not-for-profit premises that generate small volumes of waste and recycling, similar to that generated by a residential premises.
While it is not the Council’s responsibility to collect waste from commercial, community and not-for-profit premises, the three bin system is provided to encourage correct sorting of recyclables and organics.
Divert food scraps from landfill
Food scraps from small-scale commercial properties can be combined with garden organics and placed in the organics bin (green lid).
To help you manage kitchen waste, a commercial, community and not-for-profit organisation may choose to purchase a kitchen caddy and or compostable liners (certified compostable to Australian Standard 4736-2006). Please AVOID biodegradable and degradable bags as these are made from plastic and cannot be placed in the organics bin (green lid).
To avoid food waste sticking to the bottom of the organics bin (green lid), alternate layers of lawn clippings, leaves, shredded paper and newspaper between the food scraps to reduce odours and moisture. For more bin tips, visit: East Waste
