Waste & Recycling

Your Garbage Collection Service

Your annual Council Rates charge includes a Garbage Collection fee that Council provides a weekly wheelie bin collection service for residents to dispose of their household rubbish in Wilcannia, Ivanhoe, Menindee and the  Menindee Environs; a Domestic Waste Charge is also applied to vacant land.

Additional bins can be supplied but at the cost of the yearly charge.

Only waste stored in the bin will be removed on Collection Days. Council does, however, hold an annual Hard Rubbish Collection Day, free of charge, that allows residents to place larger items of white goods, tyres, sheets of iron etc out for removal.

Council has determined to discontinue to charge gate fees for it’s waste management facilities for domestic refuse. However, business, commercial and industrial waste will continue to attract fees for waste disposal at the waste management facilities. Please refer to the Operational Plan for Fees and Charges or contact the Engineering Dept on 08 80838800 to arrange access.
