Bin collection - what day and which bin?

Waste collection

There are three bins in our Shire – Red, Yellow and Green.

  • The Red bin (general waste) and is collected on alternative weeks to the Yellow bin (recycling).
  • The Green bin (organics) is collected weekly. 

Collection Days

Beechworth, Stanley, Wooragee, Yackandandah,
Kiewa, Tangambalanga, Kergunyah




Chiltern, Barnawartha


Please have your bin out by 6am on the morning of collection.

Which bin do I put out?

To find out which bin is due to be collected this week, see the Indigo Shire Collection Calendar here.

The Halve Waste website also has plenty of information to assist you in sorting your rubbish into the correct bin. 

What if my bin has been missed?

There may be a reason why this has occurred:

  • There has been a change of driver or route and the collection time of your service has changed; remember bins need to be out by 6am on the scheduled day of collection
  • Your waste/recycle/organics bin may have been contaminated, or
  • Your bin was too heavy and was unable to be emptied.

If your bin has not been collected by 4.30pm on the day of collection, please contact us.
