Bin Collection Day 🗑️: as anyone who has ever lived in a house will know, remembering when your bin is collected is one of the vital building blocks of civilised life (a tad bit dramatic, eh?). For businesses, shops, and organisations, remembering when bin collection day is also a vital component of smooth operations.

Once you have arranged your correct bins and waste /recycling streams (check out our article on getting the best wheelie bin sizes for your business and also small wheelie bins), the next step is ensuring it gets collected on time as there are a few things more annoying than having garbage build up around your business location.

Waster currently offers comprehensive waste management and recycling services in all major Australian metro regions including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart, Newcastle, Gold Coast, Geelong, Central Coast and Newcastle. Also check out our blog on skip bin hire Wollongong.

Anyway, we will run through a few, simple but important considerations to follow on the day your bin is scheduled to be picked up:


When is my bin collection day?

As a Waster customer – you will receive a Welcome Pack that details when your recycling or general waste bin hire commences and will be picked up each week. Simply keep this electronic document close to hand; and after a couple of weeks, you will get used to when the bin should be put out.


When should I leave my bin out on my bin collection day?

Leave your bin out at night before the scheduled collection if needed (i.e., not accessible by the garbage truck). If your bin is to be picked up on a Thursday, you should leave it out on Wednesday when leaving work.

Due to increasing traffic in most of our cities, garbage trucks generally operate at night. This greatly improves efficiency and keeps waste collection charges down.

If your business is in a residential area, there may be council curfews in place meaning collections can only happen during the day (so as to not annoy residents). Check out our article on Development Applications – which many businesses need when they are seeking planning approval.

You should also have a read of our article on putting locks on bins.


What time will bin collection day be?

Bin collection usually happens at nighttime. If a truck is running late, it will pick it up during the day. The rule to follow is: basically leave the bin out until it has been collected.


Why did you not collect it yet?

If it has reached midday and your bin is usually picked up at night, contact your account manager at Waster. They will check on the status of the garbage truck. In other words, they will check whether it is still on the way; or if it missed the collection for whatever reason.


Who can I contact?

You should check your Welcome pack for contact details – all Waster clients have email, text, phone and help centre options available.


I need another collection

If you need another additional collection, simply call Waster and we will seek to arrange as soon as possible. As a rule, additional collections need to be arranged before midday on the day before the desired collection.

Simply leave out your bin the next day if collectors missed it. In doing so, we will arrange a catch-up collection.
