Vegetation Collection


Lane Cove's green waste service is a fortnightly collection system. Only vegetation placed inside the bin will be collected. The bin lid must be fully closed when presented for collection.

Residents may pay an additional yearly fee for an extra bin to dispose of larger volumes of green waste. If you would like to request an additional bin, please complete the following form:
