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

All customer service enquiries will be handled directly by Cleanaway and not by Council.  This means that if your bin is missed, you receive notice of contamination, your bin is lost or stolen, you will need to contact Cleanaway.  There is a dedicated number and email for Wattle Range Council kerbside waste collection enquiries:

For residents with a private waste collection (not paid for on your Council rates), Veolia and Cleanaway will both continue to provide these services.  Please contact your provider directly if you have any queries about your private collection.

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.
