General Waste, Recycling and Organic Waste Collection

General waste, recycling and organic waste charges only apply to properties with access to a domestic kerbside collection service. The charges fully fund the cost of the collection and disposal of the waste.

For more information, please visit the Waste Management section of our website.

Domestic Waste Charges

Waste management services provided by Council include garbage, recycling and organic waste kerbside collection and street bin collection. Council is required to pay levies to the Environmental Protection Authority, mandatory occupational health and safety costs and the operation, capital works and rehabilitation of transfer and landfill station sites.

Council believes all ratepayers should contribute to these costs because everyone benefits from having access to landfill and transfer stations. The waste levies will spread this load and ensure a more equitable contribution towards mandatory environmental responsibilities and occupational health and safety requirements.
