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.
New Bin Services
If you are moving into a new house and require bins, please call on 3412 3412 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Could not load the map. Please phone 07 3412 3412 or email email@example.com for the collection schedule.
Lost, stolen or damaged bins
Please phone 07 3412 3412 or email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Please phone 07 3412 5459 or email email@example.com 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).
Residents who are unable to physically move their bins to and from the kerbside, due to disability or impairment, and have no able bodied person to assist them, can apply for a support wheelie bin service.
A support wheelie bin service is a pre-arranged bin collection service from within your property. The application for this service will only be considered if the following conditions are met:
- The dwelling is located within sixty metres (60m) of the nearest service point; and
- There is no other person who resides at the premises who is able to place the bins on the footpath for collection each week.
- Bins can be located in a location easily accessible to the waste collector.
- All roaming animals must be restrained.
- Written support from a medical professional is provided
If your application is successful, Council's waste collection contractor will enter your property, wheel out your bins to empty (from an agreed location from within your property), and upon emptying wheel back your bins.
Conditions and standard wheelie bin fees apply.
To apply for this service applicants must return a completed Application for Support Bin Service form, ensuring that section 4 is completed by a medical professional.
