Each property is issued with a general waste bin and recycling bin, while the FOGO service is on an opt-in basis. Households wishing to opt-in to the service simply need to call Council on 8721 2555 to purchase the bin (one-off payment).
The general waste bin is collected weekly, while the recycling and FOGO bins are collected fortnightly on a rotational basis. Access the kerbside calendar below or download the My Local Services app to find out the collection days for your neighbourhood.
To make sure your bins are collected by Council, please ensure that:
If your bin was not collected on the appropriate day please advise Council by phone on 8721 2555 or email email@example.com
Please note that sometimes the trucks can run late and residents are asked not to phone before 3:00pm on their collection day to advise of a missed bin.
If your bin is damaged, please contact Council on 8721 2555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org so that inspection/repairs can be carried out. If your bin is missing, please check neighbouring properties and reserves. If the bin cannot be located, a fee will be charged for a new bin which Council will deliver to you.
There will be no collections on Good Friday or Christmas Day. Notification of alternative collection day will be available in the local newspaper/s and on the City of Mount Gambier Facebook page. Collections on all other public holidays will be as normal, unless otherwise notified.
