If your strata complex has three or more units, the complex can select one of five waste packages described in the table below.
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. Contact us for more information on 02 4921 0333.

Purchasing new 140 or 240 litre garbage bins from Council
A 140 or 240 litre garbage bin can be purchased for a fee from Council by calling our Customer Service Centre on 02 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 RoadBoolaroo. To ensure bins are in stock, please call prior to collection on 02 4921 0333. We will also remove your old 240 litre bin if requested.
Purchasing the new 140 or 240 litre garbage bin from a hardware store
If you choose to purchase your 140 or 240 litre garbage bin from a non-Council supplier, you will need to ensure it meets the required specifications.
140 litre garbage bins need to meet 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.
