Hire of bins at events

Can Council provide bins for our event?

Yes, Council can provide bins for small community events for a fee.

During Spring and Summer availability may be limited due to the large number of events that occur during this period.

Large events or festivals may need to engage a private contractor if a substantial number of bins are required.

What does it cost?

The first 4 garbage bins cost $220. The first 4 recycling bins also cost $220. Any additional garbage or recycling bin will cost $33 per bin.

How do I order bins?

Call Council on 9240 1111 to raise a request for the number of garbage and recycling bins you require as soon as you can. 

A member from our Street Cleansing team will contact you once the order is received to confirm details for the invoice.

The invoice for the service must be paid 7 days prior to the event in order to secure your booking.

How many bins can I hire?

We can provide up to 10 x garbage bins and 10 x recycling bins, if necessary this can be negotiated. All bins provided are 240 litres capacity.

When will the bins be dropped off and picked up?

Usually bins will be dropped off on the Friday before the event and picked up on the Monday following the event.

An event organiser may need to attend the site after drop off so that the bins can be taken off the kerbside.

Bins will need to be returned to the drop off site for collection.
