Domestic Bins


The collection of waste and recycling bins is one of the most crucial services delivered by Council.

Here you can request new bins, report damaged or stolen bins or let us know about a bin that was missed in the last collection.

Missed collections

If your waste or recycling bin collection has been missed, please let us know by filling in the below form/s below. Requests will be carried out within 24 hours of Council being notified.

Stolen or missing bins

If your bin/s have been stolen or are missing, they will be replaced without a charge. To report your bin/s as missing or stolen, please submit to online form/s below. You will also need to submit a statutory declaration form that states your bin has been stolen or is missing. You can print out the forms below, or have one sent out to you by calling Council on 9205 5555.
