Residential Bin Collections


Residential Bin Collection

The Shire of East Pilbara offers a kerbside bin collection service to all residential properties within the towns of Newman, Marble Bar and Nullagine.

A 240L MGB and 240L MRB are supplied to each rated property, and serviced on a weekly basis. In summer months (October – April) green bins are collected  twice a week, and in cooler months (May – September) once per week.

A recycling bin collection is also included in this service. Recycling bins with yellow lids are collected fortnightly, on a Wednesday. 

The town of Newman is serviced on different days depending on which zone the property is located in. (Zone 1 or Zone 2) To see which collection Zone you are in click here.

Domestic Refuse Calendars are distributed to residents annually, free of charge.

Bin Placement

To assist waste and recycling operators in servicing your bin on collection day:

  • Place bin out on kerbside by 6AM on your collection day (missed bins incurr a $15 re-collection fee)
  • Retrieve your bin from the kerbside by 6PM 
  • Do not overfill your bin (50kg max weight)
  • Do not place items alongside bin
  • On collection day ensure bins are at least 50cm apart from other bins and objects
  • On collection day place your bin with the front of the bin facing the kerb

  • Keep the lid closed to prevent litter

New/ Replacement Bins

All residential bins are to remain at the allocated property and are not to be removed if you move to a new property. They are uniquely barcoded and numbered when distributed.

What can't I put in my Green Household Bin?  What I can put in my Recycling in?

The bins remain the property of The Shire of East Pilbara and residents are held liable for any loss or damage of bins.

If your bin has been stolen or damaged, you can request a replacement bin or the repair of your bin by completing a request form. Return the completed form to note that only property owners and property managers are able to request replacement bins as fees are applicable.

To request to add a bin service to your property, or remove the bin service off your rates, please phone our Administration Reception on 08 9175 8000.
