Your general waste garbage bin has a red lid. General waste from this garbage bin is picked up from the kerbside on a weekly basis (in urban areas) and is transported and processed into landfill.
The collection of recyclables in Singleton is managed by Hunter Resource Recovery, and is a combined initiative of Cessnock, Lake Macquarie, Singleton and Maitland councils.
Your Garden Organics bin (green lid) is emptied fortnightly from your kerbside and taken to Australian Native Landscapes composting facility in Tea Gardens where it is turned into mulch and compost that can be used at parks, sporting grounds or for agricultural purposes.
Ordering new bins or making alterations to an existing service must be completed by the rateable property owner or the authorised managing agent. Bins may be ordered at any time.
