The kerbside waste service for the Burdekin Shire is either a three-bin Service or a two-bin Service.

The Two-Bin Service consists of:

A 140 litre kerbside refuse service, or alternatively a 240 litre service (red lid bin)* collected weekly.

A 240 litre kerbside recycling service (yellow lid bin) collected fortnightly.

The Three-Bin Service includes the following in addition to the above service:

A 240 litre kerbside green waste service (light green lid bin) collected on alternate fortnights.

* Residents may request to change to the 240 litre general waste bin. The larger bin will incur a higher charge.


Council will charge all residents within the defined service area for waste services. The map defining the service areas is held in Council’s Environment and Health Section.

Council will provide waste services to occupied land only.

The owner or occupier of any residential premises, land or structure within the defined service area that is capable of producing waste will be levied a waste service charge.  The type of waste service charge will depend on whether the premise is located within a three-Bin Service a two-Bin Service area.
