Gungahlin, Woden, Molongolo, Inner North and Inner South residents can register now for services commencing 1 April 2019, with delivery of bins starting from 1 March 2019.
Green bin services may be available for apartments and townhouses. If you have your own red and yellow bins you can register directly online. If you have a shared waste service, talk to your strata or body corporate manager to find out more.
A one-off registration fee of $50 is required, however residents with one of the following concession cards can receive the service for free:
The ACT Government committed to rolling out green bins to every suburb in Canberra, with the initial suburbs of Tuggeranong and Weston Creek chosen as pilots. This provided the Government with an understanding of how many waste trucks were required for a city wide rollout, the impact that a city wide rollout may have on existing waste facilities, the regularity of pickups and the need for infrastructure to cater for the broader rollout.
Green bin services will now commence across remaining Canberra suburbs from 1 April 2019.
To find out when your green bin will next be collected, you can enter your suburb into Fix My Street.
