General waste bin (red lid)
Wingecarribee Shire Council offers a range of sizes and collection frequencies of red lid bins to help residents better manage their waste.
Available bin sizes include: 80 L, 140 L, 240 L, with the standard option being 80 L.
While these bins are usually collected weekly, residents can reduce costs by opting for a fortnightly collection of the 80 L red lidded bin. Collection would be on the same day as the yellow lidded recycling bin.
Garden organics bin (green lid)
Your green lidded bin is a 240 L bin collected fortnightly.
This garden organics collection service allows residents to divert garden waste from around the home and away from landfill, thereby reducing the production of the greenhouse gas methane.
The recovered garden waste will be processed into a range of mulch products. This process meets AS4454-2012 Australian standards.
Recycling bin (yellow lid)
Wingecarribee Shire Council offers three sizes of yellow lidded bins to help residents better manage their recycling.
Available bin sizes include: 140 L, 240 L and 360 L, with the standard being 240 L.
These bins are collected fortnightly.
The recycling service is commingled, which means all recyclable items are placed together into one bin.
