Community bin trailer for hire

Sporting and community groups who are holding events in the City of Whittlesea hire our free community bin trailer.

The trailer includes bins for rubbish and for recyclable materials. The trailer is a tandem, double axle, caged trailer containing:

  • 6 x 240 litre garbage bins
  • 6 x 240 litre recycling bins
  • labelled bin lids, which indicate appropriate material for disposal in each bin

We provide this free service to encourage recycling at community events.

How to hire the trailer

  1. Book the community bin trailer by calling 9217 2170 or emailing enviroops@whittlesea.vic.gov.au at least 48 hours before your event, and arrange to collect the trailer (subject to availability).
  2. On your scheduled collection date, collect the trailer from our Epping Depot at 68-96 Houston Street (Melway 182 A10).

    • sign a hire conditions and agreement form
    • provide a current drivers licence
    • drive a suitable vehicle to tow the trailer
