Vegetation Collection


Lane Cove's green waste service is a fortnightly collection system.  This service uses a 240L wheelie bin for all your green waste. A maximum of three 240 litre bins per residency is permitted. Only vegetation placed inside the bin will be collected. The bin lid must be fully closed when presented for collection.

What can go in your green waste bin?

Garden waste including grass clippings, twigs, weeds, leaves and pruning's. The maximum size for branches is 10cm in diameter and 30cm long. If the bin does not comply with these requirements, it will not be able to be collected.  Note: Logs, timber and tree stumps will not be collected.

Food Waste

Food scraps are not accepted in your green waste bins.  

For tips on how to waste less food, save money and the environment, go to the NSW EPA's Love Food Hate Waste website.

Residents are entitled to a free compost bin or worm farm to help reduce food waste.


This project was supported by the Environmental Trust as a part of NSW EPA’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative, funded from the waste levy.
