Bin Placement Guidelines

The rubbish and recycling bins are collected by a specialised collection vehicle with a side lift hydraulic arm. It is therefore important that your bins are placed in the correct location to ensure they are collected on time. The bins should be placed on the verge so they are 1 metre from the kerb, and approximately 1/2 metre apart, with the opening side of the bins facing the roadside.

Bins that are placed the wrong way around or too close together may not be emptied.

It is also important that all bins are placed on the verge by 6.00am on the scheduled collection day.

The diagram below illustrates these requirements:
