Rubbish Service – Mobile Wheelie Bins
Council’s rubbish removal service is provided under contract by Avon Waste. Collection day for all bins (Commercial and Domestic) is on Friday. Bins should be placed kerbside prior to 6:00am to ensure collection.
Do not leave your bin permanently by the kerb as the replacement of a stolen or damaged bin may be at your expense. The bin has a serial number stamped on the side of the bin and is recorded against your property address. Should you vacate the house, the bin should remain. Avon Waste will only collect the number of services allocated to each property.
If you require replacement or additional bins please complete a Bin Request Form to arrange delivery. Alternatively, please contact the Shire Office if you want to have unwanted bin(s) removed from your property.
Recyclable goods (can, cardboard, paper, glass and plastic) can be placed in the bins provided on Leake Street (adjacent to Moore Street intersection, School carpark). Please flatten cardboard boxes and ensure all items are empty/clean, and suitable for recycling. Bins will be emptied on a regular basis, however if you notice that the bins are full please notify the Shire Office.
