Kerbside bins

Why wasn't my bin collected?

There are a number of reasons why a bin may not be emptied:

  • Was the bin out before 6am on the day of collection?
  • Do you have the right bin out on the right day?
  • Was there material in the bin that should not be there?
  • Did the bin weigh more than 70kg?
  • Occasionally, a bin may be missed without reason.


If the wrong material is placed in a bin, the bin may not be emptied and a sticker will be placed on the bin to inform the resident. The contamination will need to be removed from the bin before the next collection.

Households who continue to present their bins with contamination may receive a letter from Council and can be suspended from the kerbside waste collection service for 3 months.  Information about acceptable waste can be found above.

Lost or Stolen Bins

If your bin is lost or stolen you can apply for a new bin to be issued.  Charges may apply.  In order to apply for a new bin please download a Statutory Declaration Form and return to your nearest Wattle Range Council Office.

All bins are the property of Council and are required to be left at the property if you relocate or sell your home. Please place your bins in a secure location when you relocate to prevent them from being stolen.
