Who do the bins belong to?
The bins are the property of Suez. Your bins have serial numbers stamped on them and these numbers have been recorded against your property. The bin must remain at the property to which they are delivered.
How many bins are included in a ‘standard rubbish service’?
- 1 x 120L general waste, red lidded bin (collected weekly)
- 1 x 240L recycling, yellow lidded bin (collection fortnightly, on the same day as your general waste bin)
- 1 x 240L garden organics, lime green lidded bin (collected fortnightly on the alternating week as your recycling bin) only applicable for properties over 400m2*

What happens if I overload or overfill my bins?
The West Metro Recycling Centre accepts a wide range of recyclable and non-recyclable items if kerbside collection is exceeded. For further information on opening times, please click here.
Disabled and aged persons who have difficulty placing the bins on the verge on collection day should contact the Town Administration (08) 9383 6600 or email and an officer will then visit your property to assess the problem and advice of a mutually acceptable solution.
Council offers a limited number of what is called a 'GOFA' service, whereby a representative from Suez can help you to bring your bin out for collection and return it for you on rubbish day. These are allocated on a most needs basis to those in our community. To download an application for this service please click here and return to the Town once completed.
