The City of Bunbury supplies residents with three bins:

  • 1 red lid general waste bin (collected fortnightly)
  • 1 yellow lid recycling bin (collected fortnightly)
  • 1 lime green lid FOGO bin (collected weekly)

Collections commence from 6am.

Bins should be place a minimum of 0.5m from all obstructions and 1m from the road verge.

Did you know? You can opt for a smaller landfill bin? Swap your 240L for a 140L wheelie bin, reduce your waste to landfill and save on rates!

We also provide two green and hard waste collections per year.

Download the My 3 Bins app so you never miss your bin day again or download the calendar at the bottom of this page.
