Changeover for Residential Wheelie Bin Collections

Wheelie bin

Published: 14th September 2022

Mount Isa residents are being reminded of an upcoming change to residential bin collection services, which will be conducted by JJ Richards from October 1, 2022.

While the collection routes and pick-up days will not change, collections will commence from 6am.

Residents are recommended to put their bins out the night before to ensure collections at the earlier start time are not missed.

From October onwards, if your normal bin collection falls on a public holiday it will be collected.

Bins should be placed on the kerb, at least 2 metres from any obstructions such as trees, cars or poles.

Bin lids must fully close. Bins that are overfull or weigh more than 70kg cannot be lifted by collection vehicles. Grass clippings, dust or vacuum dust should be bagged before placing in the bin.

The following items are not accepted in household bins:

  • Live ammunition
  • Needles and syringes
  • Liquid waste (including paints, thinners and oils)
  • Hot or smouldering material
  • Items over 1 meter long (including tree branches).
