Our Service

We offer a brown “organics” bin as part of our commercial service. 

All organic waste (i.e. food, garden and/or animal) must now be segregated from your existing trade waste receptacle and placed in the brown bins.  By keeping organic waste out of your existing bin, Council can achieve low waste treatment costs and reduce waste to landfill.

The items that can be recycled in the brown bins:

  • Food waste

  • Fruit

  • Flowers

  • Meat - raw/cooked

  • Teabags/coffee

  • Leaves/plants

  • How Can This Save My Business Money?

  • What Happens to My Waste Once It Has Been Collected?
  • How Do I Sign Up For This Service?
