Kerbside Collection Service

Waste is an ongoing worldwide issue.

All businesses and individuals have a responsibility to ensure our waste is sustainable and managed for future generations. Council has incurred significant state government waste levies and transport cost increases, and is committed to planning and implementing effective and efficient waste systems to minimise waste ending up in landfill.  Individuals utilising the Kerbside Collection can support Councils commitment by sorting and recycling household waste correctly as contaminated recycling and green waste has no other option but to end up in landfill.

Household Bin Purchasing

The bins are the property of the owner and do not belong to the Copper Coast Council.

All bins are required to comply with the following standards:

The standards sets out:

  • the design of the bins (including the colour and markings) ensuring uniformity and functionality for users, contractors and mechanical emptying systems.
  • the performance requirements and testing methods ensuring the capacity and strength of the bin is suitable for the purpose intended while being UV-stabilised and chemical resistance to increase the life of the bin.

Older style bins across South Australia are progressively being phased out to align with the Australia standards.  The dark green lid/dark green body bin has now been replaced with the red lid/dark green body bin. The complying bins can be purchased from:

  • Wardles Garbage Contractors Moonta - (08) 8825 3341
