Waste

Kingborough Council offers kerbside collection services for household rubbish and recycling.

We currently arrange weekly collection for approximately 12,000 households across Kingborough and we are looking to expand this service.

To upgrade/downgrade/replace/add a bin for your kerbside collection, please use the waste forms that can be found here.

There are two waste management facilities in Kingborough – a waste transfer facility at Barretta (previously a landfill site) and a waste transfer station at Main Road, North Bruny. The facilities are operated by Kingborough Waste Services. Through these facilities we can dispose of a range of drop-off materials, such as large general waste, recycling and green waste.  See the Recreation & Facilities Map for exact locations.

Managing Waste in Kingborough

Council has adopted a Waste Management Strategy and will now work towards implementing actions to achieve five goals which were developed in consultation with the community.

The goals of the strategy are: increased waste avoidance and reduction; increased recycling rates; best practice waste and resource recovery; efficient and sustainable governance; and effective community engagement.
