Garbage & Recycling

There will be changes to your garbage and recycling services during the festive season:

Christmas Day collections will be collected on Tuesday, 26 December 2017, and New Year’s Day collections will be collected on Tuesday 2 January 2018.

As the collection will be delayed on Tuesday 26 December and Tuesday 2 January, due to the numbers of bins on these days, residents are asked to leave bins out with the possibility that they will be collected on Wednesday. 

We  wish all our residents, business owners and visitors to the Shire a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.
