The City of Belmont encourages all residents and businesses to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover to minimise waste.
Most households within the City of Belmont are eligible for at least one 3m3 bulk bin each financial year, depending on the size of the property and available verge space. There are two types of bulk bin: blue and green.
Blue bulk bins are for the disposal of general household material. Weekday blue bulk bins will generally be delivered on Monday or Tuesday and will remain onsite for three evenings and two days. Weekend blue bulk bins will generally be delivered on a Thursday or Friday and will remain onsite over the weekend.
If you only have green waste such as branches, clippings and weeds, please order a green bulk bin. Green bulk bins will be delivered on a Wednesday and removed the following Wednesday. Rather than going to landfill your waste will be processed into mulch, saving on disposal costs and helping the environment.
As this material is made into mulch, do not place green waste in plastic bags or contaminate with non-green material.
Sometimes, the bulky size and shape of certain types of waste makes it is either difficult or inappropriate for them to be placed in the blue bulk bins. For example, fridges and freezers should not be put in bulk bins because of the potential hazardous materials they are made from.
Some bulky items can be collected by using the City’s On-Demand Collection Services. Collections are conducted every two weeks.
