Putting your bins out for collection

More than 120,000 bins are emptied across the City of Tea Tree Gully every week, so it’s important to work together to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.

Help by placing your bins on the kerb in a visible position by 6am on your collection day and bring bins in by the following day.

Bins should be placed 50cm  apart with wheels facing away from the kerb. They should also be placed at least one metre from obstacles such as parked cars, trees and electricity poles.

If you live in a multi-apartment complex, please place the bins grouped/lined up in the same bin-type, for example all recycling bins next to each other. This will make it easier for the truck to collect.

Bins must be less than 50 kg to be emptied.

Bin collections on catastrophic fire days

Bin collections will be postponed until the next possible day. Please leave bins out until they are collected. Check the fire danger rating in your fire ban district
