How do I put my bins out?

  • Place bins out before 6am on collection day
  • Bins should be placed 1 metre from road kerb and 50cm from other bins.   If there is no kerb, place in a safe position one metre from the edge of the bitumen / gravel.
  • Handles should face the property
  • Bins should be placed clear of cars, trees, poles, foothpaths and driveways
  • Lids must be fully closed
  • Maximum bin weight is 70kg (Overweight items can damage bins and the truck’s mechanical lifting arm. Spillage of waste is also likely to occur).

If your bin is placed incorrectly collection is not guaranteed.

Bin Etiquette for Your General Waste (red lid) bin

Here are a few helpful tips that will go a long way towards ensuring timely and efficient service:

  • Do not place hot items in bin – such as stove ash or cooking oil
  • Please bag loose items – such as grass, dust, powder, etc
  • Broken glass – please wrap securely in newspaper
  • No vehicle batteries please – contents are corrosive

Do NOT place the following items in your bin, these should be transported directly to your nearest landfill:

  • Building materials – such as bricks, rocks, soil or concrete
  • Liquids – paints, motor oil or solvents
  • Hazardous waste – toxic or corrosive substances
  • Medical waste – such as loose syringes and sharps
  • Vehicle parts or engine parts (*excluding tyres see below for more information)
  • Large metal objects

* Tyres are not accepted in kerbside collection, nor at any landfill site in the Goondiwindi region.  Contact your local tyre service centre for local options for disposing of tyres.

Does everyone in the region have kerbside recycling collection?

Every resident that currently has the general waste kerbside collection service will also automatically receive the kerbside recycling service.
