Waste and Recycling Collection

Waste and Recycling Collection Services

The City of Mitcham provides a three bin kerbside waste and recycling collection service. East Waste is responsible for collecting the recycling and green organics material on alternate fortnights. The City of Mitcham comes through weekly to collect the waste from the general waste bin.

Catastrophic and Extreme Fire Risk Days

Waste collection services will be restricted in the Mitcham Council’s higher fire risk area during a declared Catastrophic or Extreme Fire Danger day in the Mount Lofty Ranges District. Please leave your bins out until collected as Council and East Waste will return to service the bins in the affected areas as soon as appropriate.

There is also the potential for bin collection services in the days following a Catastrophic or Extreme Fire Danger day to be affected as Council and East Waste work towards restoring the normal bin collection schedule. In these circumstances, residents and business operators should leave their bins out until collected.

Missed, Damaged and Stolen Bins

For missed or damaged bin issues relating to the general waste bin (blue lid) call Mitcham Council on 8372 8888.

For missed or damaged bin issues relating to the recycling (yellow lid) and green organics (green lid) bins call East Waste on 8347 5111.

If your general waste (blue lid) or recycling (yellow lid) bin is stolen, please click here to obtain a lost property reference number from South Australia Police before contacting Mitcham Council on 8372 8888 for a replacement bin. As the green organics bin belongs to the resident, it is the responsibility of the resident to replace the stolen bin.
