Order extra bins

Residents and businesses can order additional rubbish and/or recycling bins. Costs for additional bins apply.

Extra bin fee

Both residents and businesses must pay an annual fee (1 July to 30 June) to have an extra rubbish or recycling bin. If you request this service, we will invoice you annually and separately to your rates notice.

As this is an annual service, we do not provide credits or refunds if you cancel the extra bin service part-way through the year.

For the current fee, select the relevant application form below.

Fee exemption

Residents in either of the following situations will not need to pay the fee:

  • households with 5 or more children under the age of 18 - a copy of your Medicare/healthcare card showing children's names is required
  • residents with special or medical needs - a medical certificate or letter from a doctor is required
