Additional collection services
Special event bins
Order Council Special Events Bin/s for occasions where you might expect additional waste to be generated like a party or a clean-up before or after moving house. We can also provide bins for recycling paper and bottles upon your request (recycling is collected on your normal, weekly pick up day).
Special Events Bins are delivered, emptied and removed Monday to Friday only. At least five days notice is required for all bookings. The current charge, valid until 30 June 2021, is $93.64 for delivery of 1 - 5 bins and $24.97 per bin empty.
You may keep the bin/s for a maximum of two weeks and have them emptied more than once during this time. Each time bin/s are emptied, a charge of $24.97 is incurred.
To use this service, please call our Customer Service Centre on 9391 7000 or complete and return the Paid Collection of Special Event Bins (PDF) application form. We will take your details and you can pay by credit card (payments must be made prior to receiving bin/s).
