Your Council in association with East Waste provides a weekly bin collection service.
Important recycling update regarding China’s National Sword program
With the introduction of China’s National Sword program, many of our residents are wondering whether it is still worth recycling. The answer is yes!
Residents are encouraged to continue to place recyclable material into their recycling bin (yellow lid) and it will be collected by East Waste and recycled.

Bins provided by the Council
The Council provides all households with three bins and a kitchen organics basket to assist you to correctly separate recyclable and organic material from general waste that goes to landfill.
Household general waste is collected on a weekly basis. Recycling and green organic waste is collected on a fortnightly basis (on alternate weeks).
Do not overfill your bin as overfilling your bin makes pick-up difficult and can cause litter to spill onto the street.
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 supplies every house with a ventilated kitchen organics basket and also provides an annual supply of compostable bags.
If you are a new resident and your house does not have a kitchen organics basket, please contact our Customer Service Team
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.
