Holiday bin collections, recycling and repurposing 

Friday, December 15, 2023

Bins will not be collected on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day and will be collected a day later. Collections will run one day behind schedule for the rest of that week.  

To find out when your next bin collection day is visit My Neighbourhood. 

For recycling cardboard, green waste, and timber view the recycling facilities opening hours for the Christmas and New Year period.  

For items that can’t be reused, repaired or recycled, view the rubbish tip opening hours.
