Residents in the Cessnock City, Maitland City, and Singleton Council* area, now receive a fortnightly Garden Organics collection service.

Your Garden Organics ‘GO’ bin  has a lime green lid and is collected fortnightly, on the alternate week to your yellow-lid recycling bin. This means you should put two bins out for collection each week.

One week would be general waste and ‘GO’ bin and the next week general waste and recycling bin.

If you have not received your ‘GO’ bin please contact 1800 870 250. An additional ‘GO’ bin is  also available by contacting your local council.

Please remember Garden Organics Only. All garden vegetation is accepted but NO bags and NO food thanks.

The garden organics material collected in your ‘GO’ bin is processed locally at Tea Gardens, where it is made into a high quality compost for use by home gardeners and farmers. Take  a look at our videos for the full story.

Exciting news!!!
