The green bin is for organic waste. This is for food remnants, bio-degradable nappies, shredded paper and cardboard, pet droppings and garden waste like leaves, grass and flowers. Waste collection in Adelaide means this bin is collected every two weeks.
What does the council do about hard waste collection in Adelaide?
Hard waste collection covers white goods, garden waste and items that have special disposal requirements like tyres and mattresses. If you have any electronic objects, furniture, scrap metal, timber or kitchen appliances, these cannot be included in the normal waste collection in Adelaide. There is special hard waste collection in Adelaide four times a year.
Isn’t this a problem?
The infrequency of hard waste collection in Adelaide creates a lot of problems for people who need to discard their rubbish and cannot wait for the next pickup. If you are moving house, having a clear out or are running a commercial or industrial business, you need a service that suits you. If you simply cannot wait for the council’s hard waste collection, you should look at a reputable company to do it for you.
