Garbage Collection Information

The bin with the RED LID is for your weekly garbage collectionPlease use your garbage bin for household refuse, though minor green garden waste can be included if it is cut to bin size and is not overly heavy.  Building rubble, soil and rocks are NOT to be placed in the bins as they create too much weight and the truck's arm is unable to pick the bin up.

In line with best practice strategy for waste minimisation to landfill, Meander Valley has undertaken the first kitchen and garden organics fortnightly collection  in Tasmania.  This collection is currently conducted in the Blackstone Heights area however it will be expanded throughout the municipality in the near future.  The kitchen and garden organics collection for Blackstone Heights has enabled Council to reduce the garbage collection from a weekly to a fortnightly frequency.  The garbage collection is on the alternate week to the organics collection.
