Council is introducing a new community waste and recycling collection service for residents in the Smiths Road and The Angle area. The service will provide skip bins for general waste and recycling, located at an easily accessible central location.

Residents can apply for access to the new facility. Upon application approval, a key will be issued and residents will be able to drop off their household waste and recycling at a time suitable to them.

Minor earthworks have now been completed to prepare the site for the installation of the skip bins. Council will send a letter to local residents with information on how to apply for access to the service.

For residents who do not receive a letter, please email our resource and waste team at or call 1300 345 345.

If you decide to take advantage of this new service, the access charges will appear on your rates notice. The total cost to you will be calculated from the date that you receive your access key.

Initially, the skip bins at this new location are scheduled to be emptied once per week. Council will monitor usage levels closely over this initial opening period.

Council encourages all residents in the Smiths Road/The Angle area to make use of this new service to dispose of waste and recycling properly, safely, and more easily than ever.

Council is committed to monitoring illegal dumping at the new site to protect the safety of residents, and in order to keep costs as low as possible. Doing the wrong thing can attract heavy fines, and puts people, wildlife and the environment at risk – please dispose of your waste and recycling responsibly.
