Kerbside Collection Service
The North Burnett Regional Council provides a weekly garbage collection service for customers in the defined waste collection areas of Biggenden, Eidsvold, Gayndah, Monto, Mount Perry and Mundubbera. Council’s Garbage Collection Service Contractor is JJ Richards & Sons.
When to put your bin out for collection
Please ensure your bin is out for collection before 6.00am on your allocated collection day, as bins are usually collected between 6.00am and 6.00pm. Periodically the Garbage Contractor will alter the time that your bin is collected (within this time bandwidth) as they try to improve efficiency with collection times and routes.
Put your bin our correctly for collection
To ensure that your bin is emptied on your allocated collection day, you need to:
. Place the bin adjacent to the kerb and within one metre from the kerb.
. The bin must be facing towards the road – wheels towards the house and the lid opening facing the street.
. Make sure the lid can close – do not overfill your bin.
What cannot go in your bin?
The following items should NEVER be placed in a wheelie bin:
. Builder’s rubble, bricks or concrete
. Hot ashes
. Paint, paint strippers or chemicals
. Car batteries, parts or oils of any kind
. Vacuum dust, grass clippings, kitty litter, Styrofoam etc. should be contained before being placed in the bin so they don’t disperse when the bin is emptied.
. Your bin’s weight must not exceed 80kg. The truck cannot pick up bins that are heavier than this.
