Household Waste

Dwelling owners located within all townships and in the majority of rural locations throughout the area receive a weekly 140 litre wheelie bin kerbside general waste collection service.

Families with six or more members in permanent residence are able to upgrade their wheelie bin size from 140 litres to 240 litres without additional charge, however, evidence of all resident family members must be provided in writing by way of formal request prior to the upgraded service being approved.

Requests for service upgrades are to be forwarded to Chris Kruger - Executive Assistant, Development and Environmental Services, for approval.

General waste collection services are also available to non-residential property owners on request.
