Waste Collection Schedule
Waste collection is handled by NAWMA and is broken down into different collection cycles. Different council areas will have different bins collected on different days, as well as recycling and green waste.
- red lidded general waste bin - collected weekly
- yellow lidded recycling waste bin - collected bi-weekly
- green lidded green waste bin - collected bi-weekly on alternate weeks to the yellow lidded bin
Only New Years Day, Good Friday and Christmas Day will impact bin collections. There are no collections on these days and therefore collections roll forward one day until the end of the affected week. Friday collections will roll forward to Saturday.
When will my rubbish be collected?
There are a few options to find out when your waste bins will be collected, such as downloading apps that send you reminders.
