Bin Collection and Calendar

Bin Collections during the weeks of Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

During the week of Christmas Day, bins normally emptied on a Thursday will be emptied the following day, Friday 26 December, and bins normally emptied on a Friday will be emptied on Saturday 27 December.

On the week of New Year's Day, bins normally emptied on a Thursday will be emptied the following day, Friday 2 January, and bins normally emptied on a Friday will be emptied on Saturday 3 January.

City of Marion's kerbside waste and recycling collection system consists of three bins:

Which bin Bin size Waste contents Collection schedule
Red Bin 140 litre Garbage Collected weekly
Yellow Bin 240 litre Recycling Collected fortnightly
Green Bin 240 litre Green organics Collected fortnightly on the alternate week to your recycling bin

The City of Marion Waste Collection Calendar outlines what can go in each bin and contains important information about bin collections, helpful hints on how to recycle right and options for dealing with tricky waste that must not be placed in any bin.

Use the 2014 Waste Collection Calendar to find your waste collection day. Simply locate your suburb in the boxes on the left and this will give you the collection day for your area. The colour bands on the calendar then tell you whether it is your recycling or organics collection week.

The Waste Collection Calendar also provides information that outlines useful details such as bin management, what can go in which bin, and how to deal with tricky waste that cannot go in any bin, such as electronic materials, large items and paints.

If you have not received your calendar, call City of Marion on 8375 6600 and we will organise a replacement.
