Lithgow Council’s first Green Waste Collection of the year scheduled for 31 January 2022

Lithgow Council provides a free green waste collection service four times a year with the first collection of the year scheduled for the 31st January 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.

*Please note grass clippings will no longer be accepted as bagged grass clippings reduce options for beneficial re-use of green waste.

Anyone who wishes to take advantage of this service must register by midday on Friday the 28th January 2022. Registration can be done by either contacting Council’s Customer Service Office on 6354 9999 or completing an online form on Council’s website at

Remember to place your green waste on the kerb ready for collection the day before.
