Waste management and recycling
The Barossa Council encourages the community to take the challenge to waste less, recycle more.
A three-bin kerbside collection service is offered to residents within our designated bin collection area.
To reduce the carbon footprint of our community, we strongly encourage you to recycle as part of a commitment to a sustainable environment.
From July 2021 we went green with a mandatory green organics service, in an effort to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.
Hard rubbish refers to your household items that generally don’t fit into, or are not accepted in your normal kerbside bin collections.
Other waste services
If your property has any hazardous waste, you can dispose of this safety at one of the Hazardous Waste Depots within the area.
We are seeking to reduce the amount of waste going into landfill each year. so please join us in our challenge to waste less, recycle more.
Request for new waste services
You can request a range of waste services including a second bin (conditions apply), special services, damage and replacement.
Sharp containers are available for purchase from our main office and all branch offices.
If you intend to temporarily place a skip bin on a footpath, road or council reserve, you will need to apply for a permit.
