Households in Whitehorse are provided with an 80 litre (standard) garbage bin for their weekly waste collection. Rubbish in this bin type goes straight to landfill.
Material that can be re-used, recycled or composted should not go in this bin.
Rubbish must be contained in bags or wrapped. A fine of $200 can apply to bags or containers of rubbish left beside your bin for collection, garbage overflowing with the lid open, hazardous items placed inside your bin and bins left on the kerb for more than 24 hours after collection.
What Day Is My Bin Collected?
To find out what day of the week your rubbish is collected, visit Whitehorse Maps.
Bins need to be placed out the night before collection day.
Council's waste services operate throughout the festive season and public holidays.
Missed Bin Collection
If your bin has been missed on collection day please first check that it’s the correct rubbish collection day, visit Whitehorse Maps.
If your bin has a sticker from the waste collection company make sure you comply with their request before you submit a missed garbage bin collection notification. You may want read about Your Waste Disposal Responsibilities.
It is important to note that drivers will not return to pick up bins that weren't left out for collection on time, that have been filled inappropriately or have been placed in such a way that the truck's lifting arm is not able to access or lift the bin.
