Blacktown City Council provides a weekly household garbage collection service which is available to all residences within the Local Government Area.
Your waste bin has a green or red lid. To meet the Australian Standard AS 4123, Council is replacing green bin lids with red lids. Eventually, all waste bins will have a red lid.
Please ring 9839 6000 to find out the collection day in your street.
This service is for the collection of household waste, so remember....
No building materials, rocks, concrete and soil
No car parts and batteries
No gas cylinders
No medical waste
No needles and syringes
No materials that can be recycled
To reduce the potential for bin vandalism and to keep the City looking good, it is a requirement of this service to put your bin out the night before or early on the day your collection is due. After the bins have been emptied, it is necessary to return all bins to a storage area on your property on the same day of collection.
Where bins are continuously left on the footpath, a fee may be charged for the return of your bin to your property.
Contact Council on 9839 6000 if your bin is damaged or stolen. This is a free service.
