Kerbside Collection

For residents in Meander Valley who receive a kerbside service, general waste is collected weekly and recycling is collected fortnightly. Residents in Blackstone Heights receive a fortnightly waste and recycling collection service supplemented with a fortnightly food organics and garden organics (FOGO) collection.

6-Month Kerbside Bin Collection Calendar

Council is implementing a more sustainable waste management strategy that may include changes to kerbside bin collection services.
Any changes would come into effect from 4 July 2022.

In the interim we have issued a 6-month kerbside bin collection calendar which is available to download below and a new calendar will be issued before 30 June 2022.

To check your bin collection days, download the 2022 Kerbside Collection Calendar or use the online Recycle Coach tool.
