The health and safety of residents, customers and employees is our top priority and we are continuing to monitor daily developments in response to COVID-19. Some Council facilities are closed including libraries, pools, playgrounds and Awaba waste management facility (to the general public).
Your garbage bin is picked up from the kerbside each fortnight and is buried in landfill.
We offer a number of flexible options to help you manage your waste.
If you need a new garbage bin for your additional service, you can purchase one as part of your service application and have it delivered to your property for a fee, or purchase your own bin from your local hardware store.
Once we receive your application, within five business days we will place a sticker on your garbage bin. It is important that you do not remove this sticker, as it lets our staff know that your additional service has been approved for collection.
With this sticker in place, we will start collecting your additional service on your usual collection day.
