Correct bin placement pictureTo ensure your bins are emptied on your scheduled collection day, you need to:
  • Put the bins out by 6.00am on the day of pick up and bring them back in within 24 hours of collection;
  • Face each bin in the right direction - wheels towards the house;
  • Keep a minimum of 30cm clear around each bin;
  • Place the right material in the right bin (See Sections 3-6 for more information);
  • Be sure your waste is not packed too tightly;
  • Don't overfill your bin (max. weight 75 kg) and make sure the bin lid is closed.
