Waste collection over the Christmas, New Year Period
There will be no changes to Council's garbage, recycling and garden organics collection services over the Christmas, New Year period. If your garbage , recycling or garden organics collection day falls on a public holiday such as Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year's Day your bins will still be emptied.
Please ensure your bins are placed out the night before your collection day and that all material to be collected is placed within the appropriate bin. If you have excess waste you can either take the material to a commercial waste facility (charges may apply) or wait until your next service day.

Sorting your waste correctly really helps. Putting the wrong thing in the wrong bin increases our waste collection and disposal costs. Ashfield Council, and its contractor Transpacific Cleanaway, take contamination of bins seriously. If the wrong thing is found in your bin, you will receive a letter from Council, or in the case of repeated contamination, your bins may be removed. Click here for our bin contamination policy.
