Mandatory and Elective Service Charges

Mandatory service charges are levied on all residential properties within Hamilton and all outer townships (except Branxholme) to provide kerbside waste and recycle collection service.

Commercial and industrial properties, in addition to “not for profit” organisations (including schools, churches, hospitals etc.), are exempt from this charge unless the service is elected.

The organics kerbside collection, available to Hamilton and Tarrington residents, is optional. For more information click here.

Bin Notices

Our waste contractor may place a sticker on your garbage, organics or recycling bin if any issues arise during collection. Reasons for notification may include bin contamination, access issues or excessive bin weight.

Please keep in mind that if the issue you’ve been notified of is ongoing, we may decide to suspend or end your collection service.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
