Wheelie Bin Re-Issue Charges

There are no wheelie bin delivery charges for new houses, new owners, or for households changing from a 240 litre rubbish bin to an 80 litre rubbish bin. The new annual rate charge will be based on the date of the swap.

Organic wheelie bins can be returned at any time but the annual rate charge will still continue to the end of the financial year. A charge of $85.00 (incl. GST) will be made for any request for a re-issue of an organic wheelie bin to the same property within two years. The re-issue charge will not apply where there has been a change in ownership of the property.

A charge of $85.00 (incl. GST) will be made for any request to swap from an 80 litre rubbish bin to a 240 litre bin within two years of the 80 litre bin being issued. The re-issue charge will not apply where there has been a change in ownership of the property.

Households may have their bin/s removed due to repeated contamination, following no fewer than three warnings pursuant to the Waste Management and Minimisation Bylaw 2019. Households that wish to have their bin/s re-issued are required to sign a conditions of use form and pay a re-issue fee of $85.00 (incl. GST) to have their bin/s returned, at the discretion of the Solid Waste Manager.
