Your bins

We contract Cleanaway to provide a waste, recycling and organics service to our residents.

We also provide two free tipping vouchers attached to rates notices each year, for occupied residential properties.

A hard waste kerbside collection service is not offered in Wodonga.

Since the introduction of the three-bin system in June, 2015 - 85 per cent of household waste is being recycled or composted. It's your continued support and participation that's helping achieve such great results.

About your bins

Many items can be recycled or turned into compost and most importantly, kept out of landfill. To help you make the most of the three bin system, click on the following links for handy hints and information about what you can/can't put in the bins.

This represents a more than 60 per cent increase in the volume of waste removed from each household compared to the two bin system.

PLEASE NOTE: Weight limits do apply to bins collected.

Find your collection day

The Halve Waste website have a handy tool for you to find out which bin is being collected this week, all you have to do is enter your street address here.

Bin options

As a standard service, all households have a 240 litre organics bin, a 140 litre rubbish bin and a 240 litre recycling bin.

We understand that this may not suit everyone's needs, therefore we have a range of options available, such as upsizing your recycling bin to 360 litres.

Caddy liners - what can I use?

We encourage residents to only use approvel compostable liners in your kitchen caddy and organics bin. Other plastic bags, even if they are labeled as biodegradable or compostable, can't be accepted.

Every year in June, you will receive a year's supply of compostable liners. If you run out early, you can line your caddy with paper towel or newspaper or empty the organic material straight into your green bin. Alternatively you can pick up small rolls from our city offices free of charge.
