Bin Collection Days

Bin Collection Days

Download a copy of our bin collection calendar below. The bin collection calendar is also distributed to residents every year.

Except for Christmas and New Year's Day, collections will occur as normal on public holidays.

Alternatively, you can get weekly notifications on your mobile phone the night before your collection day using the My Holdfast app. The app will remind you what bins need to go out and when.

Apple users can download it via the App Store. Android users can download it via the Google Play Store. Enter “My Holdfast” into the search bar and look for the wave symbol. Then download and use it. Please note the bin feature on the app is only available for residents on the Weekly FOGO service.

To ensure your bins are collected please place them out the day before or by 6 am on the day of collection.

Remember to bring your bin in within 24 hours of it being emptied.

Missed a bin collection?

If your bin collection was missed, please advise Solo Resource Recovery between 7 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday.

Putting your bins out for collection

  • Place your bins on the kerb in a visible position by 6 am on collection day and bring them in on the same day once they are emptied.
  • Bins should be 50 cm apart with wheels facing away from the kerb. They should also be at least one metre from obstacles such as parked cars, trees and electricity poles.
  • If you live in a multi-apartment complex, please place bins lined up in the same bin type, for example, all recycling bins next to each other. This will make it easier for the truck to collect.
  • Bins must be less than 50 kg to be emptied.
