New bins and bin replacements
Council will repair or replace your bin if it has been damaged.
A bin is considered damaged and will be repaired if it is missing its wheels or lid. If the bin has a split body it will be replaced with a new bin.
Lost or stolen bin
To prevent theft or damage to your bins, you need to bring them back onto your property within 24 hours of your waste collection.
Bins in new properties
If you move into a new property which does not already have a garbage and recycling bin on site, contact Council to order bins for the property and arrange delivery.
Residents and businesses can recycle garden waste by ordering a green waste bin from Council. There is a one-off fee.
New look garbage bin design and lid colour
New garbage bins have a red lid
If you receive Council's waste service for the first time or have your bin replaced, you will receive a garbage bin with a red lid. Existing garbage bins in Moreland have a dark green lid.
This change is to ensure Council adheres to the Australian Standard. Over time, all garbage bins in Moreland will have a red lid.
The design of the 80 litre garbage bin has also changed. The old 80 litre bin had the same sized body as a 120 litre bin with a raised floor to make the bin volume 80 litres. The new 80 litre bin does not have a raised floor but has a smaller body.
While the new bin looks smaller than the old 80 litre bin, it holds the same volume of waste.
Contact Council if you need further information.
