Wheelie bins eligible for collection will be identified by an "Authorised Wheelie Bin Sticker". An audit by Council staff revealed several instances of bins being put out for collection with no service charges being paid. Such situations make it difficult for us to plan service routes, and are not fair to others paying for the service. If the bin does not have an appropriate sticker displayed, it will not be collected.
Directions for attachment of sticker
Sticker to be fixed to the front of bin and centred towards the top for the truck driver to see.
Clean and dry sticker area (wash with metholated spirits for best result).
Peel off backing and adhere sticker.
What if I need a replacement sticker?
Return sticker with copy of rate notice to Council for a replacement or complete a declaration from Council. Council do not supply bins, you can purchase a new bin from local hardware stores.
What if I move from a rural area to urban or urban to rural?
If you move contact Council for advice on 6452 4800.
I have three wheelie bins, so do I get a sticker for each wheelie Bin?
You will receive a sticker for each bin collection charge paid for at the property.
For further enquiries contact Council's Reception, Goldie Street, Smithton or phone 6452 4800
Tasmania’s three waste management groups have launched a new website to assist the Tasmanian community in thinking differently about our waste.
www.rethinkwaste.com.au is a collaborative state-wide initiative of the Cradle Coast Waste Management Group, the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group and the Southern Waste Strategy Authority that encourages Tasmanians to rethink what we do with our waste at home, at school, in the workplace and when out and about.
Rethinkwaste.com.au is encouraging all Tasmanians to continue improving our environment, save energy, and reduce the burden on landfill by rethinking what we do with our waste. Reducing the level of household waste is an easy exercise in rethinking old habits and watching what goes in our bins. Rethinkwaste.com.au can show you how to get started and keep you going with great tips and ideas throughout the year.
By rethinking what we do, we can make a real reduction to the amount of waste we throw out. It’s not hard and every little bit helps.
