Organics (Food & Garden Waste) Collection Service

For collection of food and garden waste, Council provides an elective service in the Hamilton and Tarrington areas. For your convenience, a 240-litre organic waste bin is available for purchase at our Brown Street office. This bin will be collected from your home fortnightly, on the same day as the garbage. (Refer to the waste calendar for your zone).

The organic waste is transported to Camperdown, where it is composted.

For information on what materials are accepted in the organics bin please see Organic Waste Guide below.

Please keep in mind that only materials that can be composted should be placed in your organic waste bin. If we find contamination is an ongoing issue at your residence, we will discontinue your organics service. For a list of permitted organic items, visit our waste collection page or the link below. It is most important to avoid putting any types of plastic in the organics bin.

You are also responsible for keeping your organics bin in working condition. Lost or damaged bins (unless done so by the contractor) will need to be replaced. Please contact Customer Service for costs and further information.

To participate in our organic waste service, simply complete the application form below and deliver it to Customer Service.
