Request an additional or enhanced bin service

Request an additional or larger bin

If you need more capacity than the standard set of bins you can apply for a:

  • Larger 240 litre organics bin: $194.00 annually
  • Additional 240 litre recycling bin: $39.00 annually

These annual fees include GST and are subject to change upon yearly renewal.  

We do not provide a larger or additional red rubbish bin. This is in line with Council policy encouraging people to reduce waste to landfill. 

You will need to pay the annual fee before the bin is delivered. The billing year will begin when the bin is delivered to your property. 

You will be asked if you want to renew this service one month before your contract (billing year) expires. If you do not wish to continue this service, please contact Waste Management on 0800 222 431 within 2 weeks of receiving account to cancel the service.
