Order a bigger green waste bin

Residents are now able to swap over a 120-litre green waste bin (lime green lid) to a bigger 240-litre green waste bin free of charge, with no extra annual collection charge.

If you currently have two 120-litre green waste bins, you can swap them for one 240-litre green waste bin. Upon returning the second bin, the resident (providing they are the original purchaser) will receive a 50 per cent refund on the cost of that bin.

Note, residents are able to have one 240-litre green waste bin or two 120-litre green waste bins.


  • Your bin/s will be swapped over within three business days following your next collection
  • Please remember to leave out your empty green waste bin/s for us to swap over 
  • Sometimes we may swap over some bins on a Saturday, so please also leave your bin out over the weekend 
  • If you place your order on the same day as your collection, your bin/s will be swapped following that collection, so please leave it out straight away
