Who do I contact about my bins?

Please contact Suez on 13 13 35 for enquiries relating to:

  • Bin collection (incl. bin days and missed services)
  • Repair of existing bins

Please contact the Town of Mosman Park on 9384 1633, for enquiries relating to:

  • Replacing existing bins
  • Request for additional bins

Who do the bins belong to?

The bins are the property of Suez. Your bins have serial numbers stamped on them and these numbers have been recorded against your property. The bin must remain at the property to which they are delivered.

How many bins are included in a ‘standard rubbish service’?

Each premises in the Town of Mosman Park is issued with two bins:

  • 1 x 120L bin (small bin with a green lid) is the weekly general waste bin and
  • 1 x 240L bin (larger bin with yellow lid) is the recycling bin, which is collected fortnightly on the same day as the general waste bin. 

What happens if I overload or overfill my bins?

If you overfill your bin or your bin is exceedingly heavy, the Town’s contractors will not collect your bin.  You will be required to remove the overloaded waste and contact the Suez to arrange another collection or alternatively wait until your next collection in a week’s time. Overfull bins are a health hazard that attract scavenging birds such as ravens and magpies.

Recycling Matters!
