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.
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.
Phone: (08) 8159 5059
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.
If your kerbside collection bin is damaged or is in need of replacement parts (e.g. lid pins, wheels, axles, lids or the bin body),
Phone: (08) 8159 5059
If a kerbside collection bin is missing from the front of your property after it has been placed there for collection, it should be reported as missing or lost.
You will need to report it to SAPOL via the Online Lost Property Reporting (OLPR), as SOLO will require the OLPR number before a replacement bin is provided.
Phone: 08 8159 5059
If your property is being demolished, you are required to surrender your kerbside collection bins to Council.
When the new property becomes occupied replacement bins will be provided, please contact:
