Bin Collection Days

Residential Bin Collection Services

Council's bin collection service operates every day of the year, including all public holidays. Noosa Council offers many options for rubbish removal and collection. Council encourages residents to work Towards Zero Waste in accordance with its Waste Reduction and Recycling Plan 2016–2024.

  • 240L General Waste Bin (red lidded bin or may be a green lid matching the bin’s body) is serviced weekly
  • 240L Recycling Bin (yellow lidded bin) serviced fortnightly, same day as the General Waste Bin
  • 240L Garden Waste Bin (lime lidded bin) serviced on the alternate fortnight to the Recycle Bin

A larger 360L bin size is available for the Recycling Bin and the Garden Waste Bin through Council's Online Waste Requests. For fees associated refer to Council's Residential Waste Bin charges.

Bins may not be collected at the same time every week or fortnight. When placing your bins out for collection, please note the following guidelines:

  • Place bins out before 6 am on collection day
  • Bins should be placed on the back of the road kerb and 300mm from other bins
  • Weight of bin not to be more than 80kgs 75kgs
  • Handles should face the property
  • Bins should be placed clear of cars, trees, poles, footpaths and driveways
  • Lids must be fully closed (to prevent litter)
  • Bins should be removed from the kerbside after collection, on the same day of service.
