Shoalhaven City Council provides a weekly kerbside bin collection service for your red-lid bins and a fortnightly collection for your yellow-lid bins. It’s important to put the right items in the right bin.
Learn more about options for recycling household waste items as well as how to get your bin repaired, replaced, upsized or downsized.
Bins are collected throughout the Shoalhaven by SUEZ (Council's contractor).
Red-lid bin waste goes straight into landfill.
It’s important to put the right items in the right bin. See our complete Red-lid and Yellow-lid bin guide to learn more.

Bins must be at least one (1) metre from other bins, parked cars, trees, power poles and street signs.
