Your Red Lidded Bin

Red lidded binWingecarribee Shire Council offers a range of sizes and collection frequencies of red lidded bins to help residents better manage their waste:


Available bin sizes include: 80L, 140L, 240L, with the standard option being 80L. 


While these bins are usually collected weekly, 

residents can reduce costs by opting for a fortnightly collection of the 80L red lidded bin. Collection would be on the same day as the yellow lidded recycling bin.

What Goes in your Red Lidded Bin?


Your red lidded bin is used to dispose of items that are ultimately destined for landfill, but this doesn't mean everything can go in these bins. The contents of these bins are still sorted to divert valuable resources from landfill and some waste types are an environmentally unsafe if sent to landfill.

General Waste Hints and Tips


  • You can remove food scraps from your garbage bin and help the environment by setting up a compost bin or worm farm at home.
  • Single use plastic bags are incredibly damaging to the environment and it is best to ensure you avoid them when shopping at the supermarket. However if you do have some you can return them to most supermarkets where they will recycle them. This ensure they aren’t being sent to landfill where they will not break down and cause permanent environmental damage.
