Bin Requests & Reports

All residential properties in the Town are provided with a 120L general waste bin (red lid) and 240L recycling bin (yellow lid) as a standard service.

If the standard service does not meet the needs of your family there are options available to you to vary your bins to match your requirements.

PLEASE READ BEFORE LODGING YOUR BIN REQUEST:

On 1 July 2024 the Town of Cambridge will be introducing the FOGO bin system to all Single Unit Dwellings.  This means that:  

  • Your 240L Green Waste bin (Lime Green Lid) will ALSO be used for your organic food waste and will be collected WEEKLY
  • Your 120L or 240L General Waste bin (Red Lid) will be reserved for non-compostable and non-recyclable waste and will be collected FORTNIGHTLY
  • Your 240L or 360L Recycling bin (Yellow Lid) will be collected FORTNIGHTLY (as normal).

If you do not have a Green bin you will need to request one before 1 July 2024 to avoid disruption to your waste service.

Check out our FOGO page for more information on these changes.

Bin repairs and alterations will occur on Tuesdays and Thursdays as per the Town's maintenance contract with VEOLIA.

If you report a damaged bin, you may receive a second-hand, but still serviceable, bin in return.
