Waste management is the responsibility of each and every one of us.

By working together, we can reduce the level of waste going into landfill and turn our rubbish into a valuable resource.

The family who reduces waste in the home helps protect the environment. Our challenge as a community is to reduce our ecological footprint.

We provide weekly domestic rubbish collections, fortnightly recycling  collections and two hard waste verge, plus two green waste verge collections per annum.

For the convenience of our residents, we operate a waste transfer station at the original Ranford Road landfill site. 

For all enquiries on yellow-topped bin, green bin and verge collections please call 9231 0716.
