Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, all non-essential public facing services of Council and facilities are closed. We will continue to provide essential services including waste collection and services to the most vulnerable in our community.
This bin is for garden material only, as it is composted to create garden products and soil additives. Food waste, pet litter and bioplastics/compostable plastics are not accepted in vegetation bins as they require specialist composting and disposal.
Bins weighing over 90 kilograms cannot be emptied.
The following materials are permitted to be put in your vegetation bin:
Grass cuttings (put it in last to avoid it sticking to the bottom of your bin)
Leaves and twigs
Tree loppings (must be less than 50 mm in diameter and 400 mm in length)
The following materials are NOT to be put in your vegetation bin:
Food scraps and waste
Tree stumps or loppings bigger than the above
Treated, painted or stained timber
Other general household waste
Weight limit: 80Kg
Check your collection dates
Green waste is taken to the Eastern Creek composting facility to be screened for inorganic material like glass, and then composted. The mature product has a number of garden uses and is sold wholesale or at retail outlets.
