Resize Your Waste Bin

Shellharbour City Council offers all new residents an 80L, 140L or 240L Waste Bin as part of your residential waste service.

Reduce Your Bin Size

Save money and help the environment by reducing the size of your Waste Bin. By choosing the smaller 80 Litre or 140 Litre bin instead of the larger 240 Litre bin you send less to Landfill as well as saving on your annual waste levy. There is no changeover fee to reduce the size of your Waste Bin.

Downsize & Save

Could you do with an extra $155? Why pay for air?

With the introduction of the weekly FOGO service ALL food waste should now go into your green lid bin.

Almost 40% of the average red lid bin contained food prior to the introduction of FOGO.

If you now consistently have more room in your 240L red lid bin why not downsize?

An 80L waste service costs $155/yr and a 140L waste service costs $135/yr less than a 240L service (based on 2020/2021 costs)

Bin Upsize

Only the property owner can request the red Waste Bin to be resized.  

A one off administration fee of $68 will be charged for any upsize of your red lidded Waste Bin.  Your change of service request will not be processed until payment has been received by Shellharbour City Council, and you will need to advise your Property ID number.  The rates will then be adjusted to reflect the change to the annual waste levy
