Wheelie Bins

Find out more about:

Collection

Please place your bins at the kerb for collection the night before your collection day or by 6 am on the day of service. Please call 07 3412 3412 if you do not know your day of service.

Place your bin no more than one metre from the gutter with the wheels and handle closest to your house. The bins should be at least 30-50 centimetres apart.

Bins should be clear of overhead obstructures, such as wires and trees, to assist with collection.

Please don't overfill your bins. Bin lids should be down flat. If not, there may be spillage of waste during emptying of the bins.

The collection vehicle cannot lift heavy bins. Please do not place heavy items, such as sand, dirt and rocks, in either bin.

Lost, stolen or damaged bins

Please phone 07 3412 3412 or email council@logan.qld.gov.au for your bin to be repaired or replaced.

Your damaged bin will have to be placed on the footpath for the contractor but you can still put rubbish or recyclabes in it. It will either be repaired or removed (contents and all) within 2-3 business days of your contacting us. There is no charge for the repair or replacement of the bin.

If your bin has gone missing, your replacement bin will be left on the footpath within 1-2 business days of your contacting us. There is no charge for the replacement bin.

Unemptied bins

Please phone 07 3412 5459 or email council@logan.qld.gov.au to report the situation. As the collection contractor has until 5 pm each day to complete collections, please wait until the day after collection before reporting a missed service. If the bin was missed by the collection vehicle driver, the truck will be sent back to empty it at no charge. If, however, the bin was missed because of an act or omission on your part, the truck can only return after payment of a fee to Logan Waste Services. These acts of omissions may include:

  • not having the bin on the footpath by 6 am on the day of collection;
  • presenting an overfull bin (the lid must be down flat); or
  • presenting an overweight bin (the truck can only lift 70 kilograms).
