Resize My Residual Waste Bin

Wollongong City Council offers residents the choice of an 80 litre, a 120 litre or 240 litre Residual Waste Bin (red lid) as part of your residential waste service.

Reduce Your Bin Size

Save money and help the environment by reducing the size of your Residual Waste Bin. By choosing a smaller bin rather than the maximum 240 litre bin you can save on your annual waste levy. There is no changeover fee to reduce the size of your Residual Waste Bin.

Increase Your Bin Size

If you are choosing to increase the size of your Residual Waste Bin a waste service changeover fee applies, as well as an increase to your annual waste levy, see Wollongong City Council Waste & Recycling Fees & Charges 2019-2020.

Only property owners can request a change to the size of their Residual Waste Bin.  If you are not the owner, you will need to contact the managing agent or the owner to discuss a resize.
