Three Bin System

Since January 2007, Whyalla residents have been working with Council to increase our waste diversion rate by separating their waste using a three bin system. Splitting your waste into the three bins saves room in your red lidded waste bin for non-recyclable materials; it also reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions expelled through the breakdown of waste when landfilled.

If you are paying for a Kerbside Collection Service, your property should have the following bins:

140L waste bin (red lid)

Collected weekly
For tips on how to reduce the amount of waste you are putting into your red lidded bin, please click here.

240L recycling bin (yellow lid)

Collected fortnightly

240L organics bin (green lid)

Collected fortnightly on the opposite week to your recycling bin.

Collection Areas

If you are unsure what day your bins are emptied you can check on the service calendar by checking the Related Information, or if you are unsure which area you are in for recycling/garden organics collection all our friendly customer service team and they will be able to assist you.

To make sure your bins are emptied by Council's Waste Contractor, follow these easy steps;

  1. When your bins are presented at the kerbside make sure there is 1 metre between bins, as the contractor needs to be able to pick bins up and place them down again.
  2. Make sure the wheels of the bin are nearest your property.
  3. Do not place bins under trees.
  4. Do not overfill your bins. Overfilled or excessively heavy bins may not be emptied.
  5. Make sure your recycling/garden organic bins are free from contamination. If you bins contain contaminated materials they will not be emptied.
