Strata properties

If your strata complex has three or more units, the complex can select one of five waste packages.

Please check with your Strata Manager or Body Corporate about which package your complex has selected before ordering bins, as each strata complex is able to select only one type of package.

Purchasing a 140L or 240L garbage bin from Council

A 140L or 240L garbage bin can be purchased for a fee by calling our Customer Service Centre on 4921 0333.

Once payment has been received, bin delivery will be arranged. 

Alternatively, if you do not wish to pay a delivery fee, you can collect your bin from our Works Depot, 18-32 Creek Reserve Road, Boolaroo. To ensure bins are in stock, please call us  on 4921 0333 prior to collection. We can also remove your old 240L bin if requested.

Purchasing a 140L or 240L garbage bin from a hardware store

If you choose to purchase your 140L or 240L garbage bin from a supplier other than Council, you will need to ensure it meets the following specifications:

  • bin height (ground to top of lid) maximum of 920mm
  • bin lid dimensions maximum of 535mm wide by 640mm long

Bins that don't meet the specifications may not be emptied due to the capability of the garbage truck.

Does my complex need to pay a delivery fee

If your complex changes to an upsize, downsize or shared waste package, a delivery fee per complex will be charged to deliver new bins and remove extra bins.

Council will send an invoice to the person who signed the Waste Package Request form on behalf of the complex.
