Garden Organics Collection

Each property paying residential rates is provided with one 240 litre green lid garden organics bin that is emptied fortnightly on the same day as the garbage collection. Garden organics collected from the City Of Ryde are turned into high quality mulch.

Before using your garden organics bin, have you considered using Council’s free Chipping and Mulching Service or perhaps composting your garden organics? Not only will this free up space in your green lid garden organics bin but will give you great mulch and fertiliser to use on your own garden.

Extra green lid garden organics bins are available at an additional charge. Please see the Residential Bins section for more information.
