Household Waste


We provide a weekly household garbage collection service which is available to all residences within Blacktown City. 

Your waste bin has a green or red lid. To meet the Australian Standard AS 4123, Council is replacing the old dark 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 (these should be placed in your yellow lid bin)

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.

If you bin is damaged or stolen contact us on 9839 6000. This is a free service.

Did you know?

Blacktown City residents can save over $140 by minimising your waste. We offer a reduction in fees for domestic waste services to property owners who choose to use a smaller 140 litre garbage bin. You can organise for your bin to be swapped by phoning 9839 6000.


SAFETY FIRST: Due to the size and shape of the garbage and recycling trucks, drivers have blind spots (areas hidden from view). Please supervise children at all times when trucks are nearby.
