Scheduled rubbish (red lid), green waste (green lid) and recycling (yellow lid) bin pickups will continue as normal during the Christmas and New Year period.

Rehome, repurpose, donate your unwanted items
Before booking your clean-up, if you have unwanted goods that are in good working condition, why not try alternatives and give these items a second chance.
Donate or rehome your goods- before you put out items for Council collection, think about rehoming or donating to the Bower or Salvos services. Close the loop by also aiming to shop for your own goods from these shops before buying new items.
You can also try your local Freecycle group to see if another person would like to have the items.
To recycle items that Council cannot recycle visit Planet Ark’s recyclingnearyou page to find out options for recycling building materials and other items.
