Your Yellow Lidded Bin

Yellow Lidded Bin

Wingecarribee Shire Council offers three sizes of yellow lidded bins to help residents better manage their recycling:

Available bin sizes include: 140L, 240L and 360L, with the standard being 240L.

These bins are collected fortnightly. 

The recycling service is commingled, which means all recyclable items are placed together into one bin.
