Christmas Collections

Every year, Council provides additional waste services for residents over the Christmas and New Year period to assist in disposing of additional waste.

2020 dates are currently not available. Keep an eye out on Council’s Facebook for updates. 

Extra bin collections

Council provides extra bin collections for two weeks to help with the additional waste and recycling produced over Christmas and New Year.

Recycling Drop-off Week

Council holds a free recycling drop-off week to collect normal household items, with public holidays and the weekend excluded.

Accepted items include:

  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Milk and juice cartons
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Plastic bottles and containers
  • Steel and aluminium cans 

Christmas Tree Drop-Off Day

Council holds a Christmas tree drop-off day where real Christmas trees are collected and turned into mulch that will be used to care for local parks and gardens. 

Artificial trees are not accepted during the day.

Most large multi-unit complexes are on a "Collect and Return" service. The waste collection service provided to these complexes does not require residents to place their bins at the kerbside. Garbage bins are emptied twice weekly and recycling bins are emptied weekly by the contractors directly from the bin storage area. Please do not remove bins from the bin storage area so all residents can access and use the bins.Please ensure all waste and recycling are placed inside the bins provided as waste left on the floor of the bay cannot be collected.
