Waste Management

NEW Waste Website

This website has been set up to help you find out all you need to know about waste and recycling services in the Lithgow City Council areas.

If you need to know what day your waste bin is collected, which fortnight your recycling bin gets picked up, more about how the service operates, or if you have a problem with a service, you’ll find all this and more here.



Waste Education Programs

To help educate the community about the importance of waste minimisation, Lithgow City Council is actively engaging in education programs designed to encourage resource recovery and increase understanding of the benefits to the local community and surrounding environment of recycling and waste avoidance.
