It’s important that your recycling bin and green waste bin are placed out on the correct day, as they are collected on alternate weeks.
You will need to place your bins out before 6am on the day of collection. You will need to place you bins 1 metre apart from each other and clear of trees, light and power poles, parked vehicles and driveways. If you live in a court, place your bins on the straight section of the road near the court.
Changes to your Garbage Bin
Wyndham City is joining the war on waste! On July 1, 2018 introduced a new 120 litre garbage bins with a red lid.
This change means we are consistent with Australian standards, while also supporting our goal of 90% waste diversion from landfill by 2040.
We’re aiming to begin changing all remaining yellow lid bins by 2020.
We have also reduced the price of our green organics collections to $75 per year and we also offer discount on worm farms and compost bins.

Filling Your Bin
When filling your bins do not:
- Push the waste in so hard that it becomes jammed and difficult to empty
- Overfill your bins so that the lid remains open
Once emptied, please collect and return to your home.
Your garbage bin is 120L or 140L in size with a red or yellow lid and is collected weekly. This bin is for waste items which cannot be reused or recycled.
Items you can place into your garbage bin include:
- Flexible Plastics
- Broken Crockery
- Food Scraps (if you do not have a green bin, worm farm or compost bin)
Do not place the following items in your garbage bin:
- Car parts
- Rocks, soil, green waste
- Building materials
Waste that is put into the garbage bin is taken to landfill where it is buried and compressed underground. It is important to recycle as much as possible to ensure these natural resources aren’t lost and are used to create new products instead. For more information check out our Waste and Recycling Guide.
Green Waste Bin & Kitchen Caddy
Your green waste bin is 240L bin in size with a green lid and is collected fortnightly. This is an optional service with an annual fee, to order a green waste bin visit Bin Requests. Green waste is transformed into rich compost at Veolia’s composting facility in Bulla. This compost is used in parks and gardens in Wyndham. Learn more about this process at Back to Earth.
Users of a green bin can have a FREE kitchen caddy, they are a great way to separate fruit and vegetable scraps in the kitchen. Just visit Wyndham Civic Centre or Point Cook and Tarneit Community Learning Centres to pick one up. There are only a limited number of caddies left so get in quick.
