Rubbish & recycling  |  25 Mar 2020

There is no change to our kerbside collection service. You should continue to put your bins out as normal. If the situation changes, we will keep you fully informed.

Please space your wheelie bins at least 50cm apart to make them as accessible for our trucks as possible and to help avoid the need for the bins to be handled.

If parked cars are in the way, please place your bin on the road, closest to the kerb. Alternatively, you can place bins at the end of your driveway.

Can I drop rubbish at the dump?

  • No. The EcoDrop transfer stations at Parkhouse Road, Styx Mill and Bromley are closed to the public from 4.30pm Wednesday, 25 March.
  • The Barrys Bay transfer station is also closed.
