In 2019 the green waste service in Bayside was expanded to include food waste and become the food and green waste service. From Monday 4 July 2022 this bin (light-green lid) will be collected weekly and the household rubbish bin will be collected fortnightly.

83% of residents now use this service and are recycling their food scraps in the food and green waste bin, creating a high-quality compost for local farmers and reducing the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

Fill in the form below to order your new food and green waste bin. This form is for residents who don’t already have an existing food and green waste bin.
