Official Council rubbish bags make our rubbish collection a user-pays system rather than adding the cost to rates, so you can save money by recycling more and using fewer bags.

The official bags are also accepted free of charge at the Council’s refuse transfer stations.
The large bags, approximately 60-litres, are available from the outlets below at $2.30 each.
The small bags, approximately 40-litres, are available from the outlets below at $1.60 each.
Note: Supermarkets may include a handling margin on these prices.
The purchase price of the new official refuse bag includes:
- The supply cost of the refuse bag
- The contract collection cost each week
- The refuse disposal cost for the bag contents
- The Council’s administration costs for managing the service.
