Your bin will be emptied into the garbage truck using a side-operating mechanical arm, therefore, correct placement of your bin on collection day is necessary as follows:

  • have the handle and wheels of the bin facing your house, and the opening of the bin facing the road
  • place the bin half a metre apart from the recycling bin
  • do not place the bin behind parked cars or near trees or other obstructions.
  • do not overfill your bin or place anything on top of your bin

Bin Spacing

Have your bin correctly placed by 6.00am on collection days.
