  • Garden prunings…no longer than 2 metres, not thicker than 200mm and tied in bundles. 
  • Weight limit of 16 kilograms for each bundle or box. 
  • Quantity of 1 cubic metre (about 4 wheelie bins) for each collection

Register for green waste collection

Residents are reminded that the form will close at 12.00 noon the Friday before the scheduled collection date.

Please note: 

Bagged lawn clippings and leaves are no longer collected due to plastic contamination. These can be composted at home, placed in your waste bin or delivered to Lithgow Solid Waste Facility.
