What's On

Garden Organics Collection

Garden Organics Service


Find out your pick up day, full details of the service and all updates are on the Your Organics Bin website.

The garden organics service is a fortnightly kerbside collection in a new dedicated lime-green lidded bin. The collection occurs on the opposite week to your recycling service.

The service further reduces the volume of waste going to landfill and is expected to divert over 7,500 tonnes per year (on average 30% of current waste bin contents). The collection accepts grass clippings, pruning’s, weeds, leaves, fronds, branches, stumps, roots, root balls, trunks and untreated timber.


This is the third component of Council's Kerbside Waste Service which was identified as a high priority in the current Waste Management Strategy 2014 -19.
