Household Waste

To ensure your bin is collected, follow these simple steps:

  • Place your bin out the night before collection is due. No guarantee is given that collection times will not change on the day. While Council and its contractor endeavour to maintain a consistent collection time, if your bin is not out for collection when the truck arrives, the truck will not return.
  • Place your bin with the handle facing towards your property, so the lid opens facing the road.
  • Make sure your bin is not overfull and that the lid is closed.
  • No HARD WASTE should be placed in the garbage or recycling bin.

Items that should not be placed in the garbage bin include:

  • Gas bottles
  • Fencing wire
  • Electrical wire
  • Electrical appliances
  • Bricks 
  • Concrete
  • Green waste
  • Paint tins & farm chemicals

Please remember that loose plastic and supermarket bags are NOT recyclable and should be placed in the garbage bin.

Concrete and bricks are only accepted at the Birchip and Donald Landfills.
