Waste and Recycling
The Council aims to provide efficient, reliable and sustainable waste services to meet the needs of the Hobart community.
Waste is collected from residential and commercial properties on a weekly basis, whilst recyclables are collected fortnightly, totalling more than 1.5 million bin collections every year.
Other activities of the waste and recycling function are:
- The public litter bin collection service of approximately 450 bins throughout the City of Hobart.
- Management of the McRobies Gully Waste Management Centre with an intake of around 26,000 tonnes of general waste, 500 tonnes of recyclables and 5,500 tonnes of green waste annually.
- Administering free-entry weekends at McRobies Gully Waste Management Centre for green waste and general mixed waste.
- Forming partnerships with government, industry and community sectors to facilitate sustainable solutions for waste management.
