How to place your bins

Place your bin on the nature strip the night before collection day.

To ensure your bins are collected:

  • make sure bins are not overfilled and the lid is closed (avoid putting materials on top)
  • provide a 1m clearance around the bin (where possible)
  • place bins 30 to 50cm apart from one another
  • avoid placing bins in a driveway, on a road or near trees, cars or poles.
  • do not place in the bowl of the court
  • do not place at the end of a hammerhead court

Bins should not weigh more than 75kg.
