Bins & Waste

The City of Albany provides a four-weekly green waste collection service for all residential properties. Green waste from your garden is a valuable resource. The green waste from your bin is transported to a local facility that processes the garden organics to produce garden mulch.

What can I put in my green waste bin?

The black bin with a green lid is for your green waste including plant material, leaves, prunings, grass clippings and small branches.


It is important to make sure that only green waste is placed in the bin. Placing incorrect items in the bin is called 'contamination'. Contamination causes problems during the processing of green waste and can prevent the green waste being processed into high quality mulch. Just a few contaminated bins can ruin an entire truckload and send tonnes of green waste to landfill. Make sure your efforts count - RECYCLE RIGHT!
