Missed collection

Possible delays in waste collection - Updated 9 March 2022

Council is experiencing some delays in its waste collection services, particularly household waste (red lid bin) in the following suburbs:

  • Ashbury, Ashfield, Croydon, Croydon Park, Haberfield, Hurlstone Park, and Summer Hill
  • Waste transfer to landfill has been paused due to flooding closing transport lines.

Please leave your bin out as usual, and be aware that pickup times may change slightly.

What to do if your bin has not been collected

Go through this checklist first:

  • That it is the correct collection day
  • That the right bin is out on the right week, in the case of fortnightly collections
  • That you have placed the correct materials in your bin
  • That your bin weighs less than 70kg – if you cannot lift the front of the bin and move it with one hand, then it is too heavy.

If all of these are correct please report a missed collection.
