Please be aware there may be delays to garbage collections where roads are closed due to flooding (including in low lying areas of Manly Vale, North Manly and near Manly lagoon). When it is safe to do so, leave bins on the street and clear of flowing or flooding waters and trucks will return as soon as they are able.

Every week Northern Beaches rubbish collection services come around to empty bins on your street. Recycling is collected either weekly or on alternate weeks and vegetation fortnightly depending on your address.

  • Place bins out the night before collection day and bring them in within 24 hours
  • Bins should be on the kerb, at least 20cm apart and lid openings facing the street
  • Items must be in the bins with the lids closed to avoid windblown litter, spillage when emptying bins and foraging from birds and other animals

If you need to report a missed or partial service or have any other issues with your waste service please visit the waste online help centre using the button below.
