Bins and Collection

 /  ServicesRecycling and WasteBins and Collection

We contract Cleanaway to provide a waste, recycling and organics service to our residents. We also provide two free tipping vouchers attached to rates notices each year, for occupied residential properties. A hard waste kerbside collection service is not offered in Wodonga.

Our team are here to support your household utilise your bins and our Resource Cecovery Centre effectively to maximise recycling. The Resource Recovery Centre accepts many bulkier items like polystyrene and larger amounts of cardboard that can fill up your bins quickly.

Making the most of your bins is all about sorting out recyclable items away from the red-lidded bin, placing a recycling bin inside your home and having your kitchen caddy handy to collect food scraps for the green-lidded bin are great places to start. Remember to pop into our offices if you have run out of compostable liners.

To help you make the most out of the three-bin system click on the following links for handing hints and information about what you can/can't put in the bins.

PLEASE NOTE: Weight limits do apply to bins collected. If you bin weighs more than 80kg then it may not be collected. As a guide, if you’re struggling to move your bin to the kerbside for collection, it is likely it will be too heavy to lift.


Bin options

As a standard service, all households have a 240 litre organics bin, a 140 litre rubbish bin and a 240 litre recycling bin. We understand that this may not suit everyone's needs, therefore we have a range of options available, such as upsizing your recycling bin to 360 litres.

Contact us on on (02) 6022 9300 to discuss costs and options available to you. Some options might include (Charges (annual) apply):

  • Yellow-lidded (recycling) bins: 360L $20, additional 240L $46
  • Red-lidded (waste) bin: 240L $42.50
  • Green-lidded (organics) bin: Additional 240L $128

Bin placement

Residents whose homes are on laneways are asked to take care when placing their wheelie bins out for collection.

Ensure your bins are at least one metre apart and one metre away from fences, cars, trees and other obstructions to ensure bins can be collected and property is not damaged.


Caddy liners - what can I use?

Please only use approved Halve Waste compostable liners in your kitchen caddy and organics bin. Other plastic bags, even if they are labeled as biodegradable or compostable, can't be accepted.

Every year in April, you will receive a year's supply of compostable liners. If you run out early, you can line your caddy with paper towel or newspaper or empty the organic material straight into your green bin. Alternatively, you can pick up small rolls from our city offices free of charge.


As of July 1, 2019 e-waste is no longer accepted in any bin or landfill site across Victoria.

Instead, it must be taken to dedicated e-waste drop-off points where it will be collected for resource recovery.
