Council provides a wheelie bin service for rubbish and recycling to all properties within particular boundaries, usually townships. The service is also available to people in rural areas en route to the townships, where practicable. The rural service is voluntary and will be provided when requested by the ratepayer. People must take bins to a collection route.
All collection services are contracted out and the wheelie bins remain the property of the contractor, who is responsible for normal wear and tear. The customer is responsible for providing reasonable security against damage or theft and keeping it clean and tidy. Wheelie bins are assigned to properties so if you move, the wheelie bin stays with the property.
