All red-lid general waste bins are collected weekly. Yellow-lid recycling and green organics bins are collected on alternating fortnights.
Bins are collected Monday to Friday, including all public holidays except New Year’s day, Good Friday and Christmas day. On these days and the remaining days of those weeks, collections occur a day later than usual collection day.

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 that we work together to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.
You can help by placing your bins on the kerb in a visible position by 6am on your collection day and bring it in by the following day.
Bins should be placed 50 centimetres apart with the 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 50kg to be emptied.
