Report a bin issue

The City of Unley operates a three bin system to help residents and businesses divert materials for recycling and reduce landfill.

Council waste management is operated by SOLO Waste. Below are the bin issues that can be reported to SOLO Waste.

Missed bin

Step 1.Check the date

Before reporting a missed bin collection, check the collection day here

All waste bins (blue lid) are collected each week, recycling (yellow lid) and organic (green lid) bins are collected on alternating fortnights.

Step 2.Contact SOLO Waste Hotline

Phone: (08) 8159 5059


Step 3.Future Tips to ensure your bin is collected on time

  • Put bins out by 6am on the day of pick up, or the night before

  • Face each bin with wheels towards the house

  • Keep a minimum of 30-50cm clear around each bin

  • Don’t overfill the bin (maximum weight 75kg)

  • Place the right material in the right bin

  • Don’t pack the waste too tightly

  • Make sure the Lid is closed

  • Bring bins back in within 24 hours of collection. Bins left out can become hazards for pedestrians, block vision of vehicles reversing out of properties and can encourage illegal dumping of rubbish by others.
