Bin Collection

If your bin has been missed, please report it within 48hrs using our online form below. Please leave your bin out until the collection is complete.

***Changes to collection days from 18 July 2022***

Council’s waste collection contractor, Cleanaway, has reviewed its routes and schedules to ensure our growing community continues to receive reliable and efficient services.

For about two thirds of Fraser Coast households, nothing will change with bins collected on the same days.

However, about one third of households will have either a new bin collection day, a change of recycling week or a combination of both.

Properties affected by the change have been notified by direct mail or email and there will be a two week transition where bins are collected on the new day and the old day.

The changeover will occur in stages throughout the region over several weeks starting from 18 July.

Type in your address in the interactive map below to find out your bin collection days and to check if your bin days will change.

REMINDER: Place your bins out by 6am on collection day (all areas may have different pick up times to what occurred previously). 

  • Type in your address below for your weekly general waste and fortnightly recycling day.
    *Changes to your bin days will take effect from Monday 18 July. 
    Download and print a recycling calendar to keep track of your A week or B week recycling day.
