  • All unit blocks are provided with a "wheel in, wheel out" service. Your bins are collected from the bin storage, presented to the street for emptying then returned to the bin storage area.
  • It is the responsibility of the Body Corporate/Strata Managers to ensure the bin storage areas are always accessible. Council's waste collectors WILL NOT remove bags of rubbish or material on the floor of the bin storage areas - nor will they risk injury if access is blocked by large items dumped in the area.
