Strathfield Council is committed to providing a sustainable waste management system, with the highest standards in customer service. Waste will only be collected if it is placed in Council approved bins and in accordance with Council’s bin presentation guidelines.
Council provides the following Waste Services to all residential properties in Strathfield.
Council’s waste services will continue as normal over Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year period. Please put your bins out the night before collection to ensure they are collected on your regular day.
Remember to put your yellow bins out the week of the 25th of December and your green bins out the week of the 1st of January.
Collections will start at 4am on 25 December 2019 and on 1 January 2020.
Information regarding change to waste collection days
Council wishes to inform you that changes will be made to waste collection services in some locations throughout the Strathfield LGA.
Please note that not all properties within the Strathfield LGA will be affected; Council will be notifying affected residents via post and mail box letter drops.
These changes will start from Monday 1st July 2019.
Please see below for a listing of street names that will have a change of collection date. If you are unsure if your property is affected, please review the listing.
Council’s Officers will also be placing stickers on bins that fail to comply after 1st July, to notify residents about the change.
These changes are aimed at improving the efficiency of Council's waste collection and providing better services to residents and property owners as well as enhancing the visual appeal of the streets.
