Waste to Landfill Collection Service
Your Red Lid Bin is for Waste to Landfill only. This bin is collected weekly with your FOGO Bin and alternating Recycling Bin. This bin is for most items that cannot be recycled or placed in your FOGO Bin. There are still some items that cannot be placed into this bin due to the environmental damage they can cause when landfilled. For information on what to do with problem wastes click here.
Council offers residents the choice of an 80L, 120L or 240L Waste to Landfill Bin to suit the needs of the resident.
