Kerbside collection

AlburyCity offers a three-bin (default) system for residents and small businesses to dispose of their waste correctly.  

  • A 240 Litre green-lidded bin to recycle household organic waste, collected weekly 
  • A 240 Litre yellow-lidded bin to recycle items such as hard plastic, aluminium, paper, cardboard, steel and glass, collected fortnightly
  • A 140 Litre red-lidded bin to dispose of household waste and refuse that cannot be recycled, collected fortnightly

If you need to arrange a new residential or commercial kerbside collection or cancel an existing one, complete the change to bin size request form. You can also use this form to request additional bins or upsize or downsize your bins if the current default system does not suit your needs.
