New Waste Service

As you prepare to occupy your newly-built home or development, you will need to organise a waste service for the property.

An Occupation Certificate must be lodged with Wollongong City Council before bins will be issued for the new property. Approval of a waste service does not imply approval to occupy the dwelling. An Occupation Certificate must be issued before you may occupy the dwelling - contact Wollongong City Council for further information.

Bins cannot be delivered to a vacant property.

Your recycling and waste service consists of three bins:

  • Recycling 240 Litre Bin (Yellow Lid)
  • Organics 240 Litre Bin (Green Lid)
  • Residual Waste 80 Litre, 120 Litre or 240 Litre Bin (Red Lid)

Wollongong City Council offers a choice of an 80 litre, a 120 litre or 240 litre Residual Waste Bin to suit the needs of the resident. For applicable fees click Waste Collection Fees & Charges.

To organise a waste service online in the Wollongong Local Government Area (LGA) the owner or managing agent of the property can click here or contact the Harbour Cities team.
