Bins and waste

Red-lidded general waste bins

If you're getting our service for the first time, your new waste bin will have a red lid.

If you had an older dark green-lidded waste bins that's lost, stolen, damaged or needs repairs, we'll replace it with the red-lidded bin.

Our red-lidded waste bins align us with the Australian Standard. This is a Victorian Government requirement and a planned action in our Waste and recycling strategy.

For more information, read the Victorian Government's Recycling Victoria information sheet.

There is no change to how often we collect your bins under these changes.
