Household Bin Collection Service

 

Household Bin Collection Service

The Copper Coast Council have a two bin system with an optional third. Residents are required to purchase a 140L red lidded green body bin and a 240L yellow lidded green body bin. The bins are the property of the owner and do not belong to the Copper Coast Council. The third bin that is optional is the Green Waste bin. This is a lime green lidded green body bin. 

Older bins across SA are progressively being replaced.  The dark green bin with the same colour lid that is currently still used for rubbish collection is slowly being phased out to be replaced by a dark green bin with a red lid. This is so all bins will be aligned with the Australian standard for bin lid colours.

Where possible, all new bins must comply with Australian quality requirements (EN840 and AS4123) as this will help the bins to be resistant to decay, frost, heat and chemicals.  The bin should also have special UV-stabilisation as this will lengthen the life of the bin since the plastic will not become as brittle as non-UV stabilization treated plastic bins.

If you choose to have a green waste bin, a sticker will need to be purchased from Councils main office in Kadina to be added to the collection run. These stickers apply for the financial year.

Fees are listed below for this financial year.

  • Green Waste Collection – Jul – June – Monthly 240L - $150.00
  • Green Waste Collection – Jan- June – Monthly 240L - $84.00

Where do I purchase bins from?

All new bins must comply with Australian quality requirements (EN840 and AS4123) as this will help the bins to be resistant to decay, frost, heat and chemicals.  The bin should also have special UV-stabilisation as this will lengthen the life of the bin since the plastic will not become as brittle as non-UV stabilization treated plastic bins.

The complying bins can be purchased from:

  • Wardles Garbage Contractors - 8825 3341
  • Tru Value Hardware Wallaroo - 8823 2042
  • Mitre 10 Kadina - 8821 2445

You can purchase them from other businesses providing the bin is the required model and size for the Copper Coast area.
