Waste Collection Days


Across Burwood Council:

  • General waste is collected weekly.
  • Recycling and garden vegetation are collected fortnightly.
  • If your usual collection day falls on a public holiday, your bin will still be emptied. Be sure to place your bin out the evening before your scheduled collection as the trucks may collect earlier than usual due to waste transfer facilities having restricted opening times on public holidays.

Never put the wrong bin out again
