Skip Bins

The City provides skip bins to residents for the collection of green waste and general household waste.

The Skip Bin service is an on-request service. Residents can select from either a general waste bin (blue) or green waste bin (green). Households are entitled to any combination of up to three skip bins per financial year (excludes commercial and industrial premises). Both the general and green waste skip bins are three (3) cubic metres.

PLEASE NOTE: Skip bin allocations for each financial year are determined by the delivery date NOT the booking date.  Skip bin allocations cannot be carried over to the next financial year. 

If you book in June for a July delivery, the skip bin will be from the new financial year's allocations.  It is recommended residents book skip bins earlier to ensure skip bins are available and to enable you to utilise your allocations within the current financial year.

Households that meet the following criteria are entitled to an additional green waste bin(s) only, to assist with bush fire management.

  • One additional green waste bin is available for properties 2000m2–5000m2
  • Two additional green waste bins are available for properties over 5000m2
