Shire of Bruce Rock

Recycling Collection Day

Shire of Bruce Rock Recycling collection is fortnightly on a Monday.


There will be no changes to your collection service for the Labour Day Public Holiday.

When can I put my bins out?

Bins need to be placed on the kerb by 6am on the morning of your collection day to ensure your bins are collected.

Where should I place my bins for collection?

Your bins need to be placed on the kerb with unobstructed access. Your bins should face the road with the handles facing your property. If you have more than one recycling service, it is important to place the bins at least 50cms apart to ensure there is no interference with the collection arm.

How do I get a recycling bin?

Each new service receives a 240Lt Recycling Bin. This bin remains the property of Avon Waste. If the Recycling Bin is lost, stolen or wilfully damaged, it is the resident’s responsibility to pay for a replacement Recycling Bin. To arrange a new or additional service to your property, you need to contact your local shire. All properties in the town boundary are required to have a recycling service. To purchase a replacement bin contact our office on 9641 1318. Bins need to be paid for before they are delivered.

Why wasn’t my recycling bin collected?

There are a couple reasons why a bin may not be emptied.

  • Your bins were not placed out on time.
  • Your bins may have been obstructed by parked cars or trees for example.
  • You have placed unacceptable items in your recycle bin.

If your bin was missed and you are unsure as to why, please contact our office on 9641 1318.

What can’t I place in the recycling bin?

Please refrain from placing any general waste, hot or burning ashes, bricks, rocks, soil, paints, hazardous material, solvents, liquid waste or non-recyclables into your bin.

How will my bin collection be affected by public holidays?

Your recycling will be collected as normal on most public holidays. The only exception to this is Christmas day. If your collection day falls on this day, alternative arrangements will be made and you will be advised by your Local Shire it will also be posted in 'Important Information' on this Website.

My bin is broken, how do I fix this?

Occasionally over the life time of your bin, parts may be required to be replaced. For example, bin lids, lid pins, wheels and axles. These items will be replaced where possible if the damage is incurred as part of normal wear and tear of the bin. To report any repairs, please contact the Avon Waste office.
