Recycling and Waste

Holiday changes to waste services

Some waste services in the ACT will operate under special arrangements over the Christmas and New Year period.

All kerbside waste collections normally scheduled for Thursday 25 December 2014 will be collected on Saturday 27 December 2014 instead. Residents should ensure their bins are at the kerb ready to be collected by 7 am.

Regional drop off centres are open every day of the year to help cater for those who have more recycling than they can fit in their recycling bin.

The Mugga Lane and Mitchell Resource Management Centres will be closed on Thursday 25 December 2014.

Corkhill Bros Greenwaste Recycling Service at Mugga Lane and the Canberra Sand and Gravel Green Waste Recycling Service on Parkwood Road in Belconnen will be closed Thursday 25 and Friday 26 December 2014 as well as Thursday 1 January 2015. The garden waste facility at Canberra Sand and Gravel in Mitchell will be closed from Tuesday 23 December 2014 to Sunday 4 January 2015 (inclusive).

Mugga Lane to resume accepting ACT's waste

From Saturday 20 December 2014, Mugga Lane landfill will recommence accepting all of the ACT’s general waste. As a result the West Belconnen emergency landfill will close to general waste on Friday 19 December 2014. Interim arrangements have been in place since October which saw about half of the ACT’s waste redirected to West Belconnen landfill while work took place on building two new cells at Mugga Lane landfill.
