Order a food and green waste bin

You have access to an optional food and green waste service in Darebin. Learn more.

About the service

We can provide a food and green waste bin on request. You must be the ratepayer to order a food and green waste recycling bin. If you use our service, we'll add the fee to your rates notice. There's a discount for pension card holders.

If you live in a rental property, please contact the owner or agent and ask them to order a bin on your behalf.

We don't currently offer the service to businesses. If you have a business and would like to recycle your food waste, refer to Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group's Food waste recycling for business guide, and contact Council to discuss your options.

To find out what you can put in your food and green waste bin, see our A to Z waste and recycling guide.
