Paying for larger and extra bins

Food and Green waste bins

Please note: This form should only be used to upsize your current bin. If you do not have any bins at your property, please call Customer Service 03 8470 8888 to order new bins. Waste bins remain the property of Darebin City Council and must not be moved from the address they are issued to. If you are moving to another address within Darebin, please call Council to let us know before you move and to discuss what happens to your bin.
