If you are ineligible for the new Council contracted kerbside rubbish and recycling collection service you will not have an additional annual targeted rate added to your rates invoice and your rubbish and recycling will remain your responsibility.

For these households, please use Council’s community recycling and greenwaste centres as they will remain operational.

If you have a current private waste operator that provides a door-to-door onsite collection you may continue this contract or, if not, please contact a private licenced operator.
