What Size Is My Bin?

Whitehorse City Council logo

 
If your bin does not have a City of Whitehorse logo or the words City of Whitehorse, City of Nunawading or City of Box Hill stamped on the bin, it is not a Council bin. 

Garbage Bins

 

Left: 80 Litre (standard) | Middle: 120 Litre | Right: 240 Litre

 

OLD STYLE BINS - Left: 120 Litre | Right: 240 Litre

  • Only the 80 litre garbage bin has the size stamped on it.
  • Additional fees apply to all garbage bins larger than 80 litres.
  • Bins with dark green lids are older style garbage bins. They are the same as bins with red lids.
  • All new garbage bins now have red lids.
 

 

Recycling Bins

 

Left: 120 Litre | Middle: 240 Litre (standard) | Right: 360 Litre  

  • The 240 litre bin is the standard size recycling bin.
  • A 120 litre bin is available for people who find the 240 litre bin physically hard to manoeuvre.
  • Not generating enough recyclables to fill a 240 litre bin each fortnight is not an acceptable reason for ordering a 120 litre bin.
  • A 360 litre bin is available for higher volumes of recyclables.
  • Please note the 360 litre bin can be very heavy when full-applicants should consider whether it would be more suitable to order a second 240 litre bin instead.
 

 

 Garden Organics Bins

 

 Left: 140 Litre | Right: 240 Litre

  • Additional fees apply to all garden bins.
  • A 140 litre bin is available for small gardens/storage or for people who find the 240 litre bin physically hard to manoeuvre.
  • The 240 litre bin is the most common garden bin size.
