Lithgow Council’s Third Green Waste Collection of the year is scheduled for 26 September 2022.

Council will pick up:

  • Garden prunings no longer than 2 metres and not thicker than 200mm, tied in bundles.
  • A weight limit of 16 kilograms for each bundle or box applies.
  • Quantity of one cubic metre, which is equivalent to about 4 wheelie bins, allowed per premises.
  • Grass clippings will no longer be accepted as bagged grass clippings reduce options for beneficial re-use of green waste.

To take advantage of this service register by midday on Friday the 23 September 2022 by contacting Council’s Customer Service Office on 6354 9999 or completing an online form on Council’s website at

Residents are reminded to place green waste on the kerb ready for collection the day before.
