Bin Information

Available bin sizes and collection frequency  -  Bin Dimensions  -  How much waste will my business produce?  

Council has a range of bin sizes and flexibility for collection. When considering your options please consider the amount of space you have available at your business, the distance the bins will have to be moved when full/empty, how much waste you might produce on an average week, and the quality of the waste (e.g. food waste will have to be disposed of more quickly than packaging waste).

For information on what can go into your bins and for bin presentation visit how to use your bin.

Available bin sizes and collection frequency
