Bin Collection Days

All bins must be placed on the road verge by 6am on the morning of your scheduled pickup.

Greenskills Containers for Change Refund Point

The Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) has operated in Denmark since October 2020. Visit the Containers for Change website for further information on the program. To cash in your eligible containers for a 10c refund visit the Greenskills CDS Shed at Denmark Waste Management Reuse Facility (DWMRF) - 46 East River Road, Hay, during opening hours.  

Eligible Containers

Containers must be clean with lids removed to be eligible. Most aluminium, glass, plastic, steel and liquid paperboard drink containers between 150ml and 3L are eligible for a refund. There are some drink containers that are not eligible for a refund, generally, excluded containers are those that are less than 150ml and greater than 3L. For more information, please ask the friendly staff at the Refund Point.

Bulk Quantities

Drop-offs in bulk quantities may require presentation of your Driver's Licence and completion of a Refund Declaration. The declaration is available at the Gate House or the CDS Shed during operating hours. When dropping off containers in large quantities, we recommend you have a Scheme ID to allow for Bag Drop and reduce waiting time. To set up Scheme ID visit Containers for Change webiste registration page.

Bag Drop Outside of Refund Point Operating Hours

Outside of regular CDS Shed Operating hours containers can be dropped off at a designated area adjacent to the DWMRF Gate House to be counted throughout the week. Vessels holding the containers must be labeled with Scheme ID, name and phone number. They must be secure and easy to transfer.

Vessels used for drop off the containers are required to be collected promptly once counting has taken place. In the event that containers are excessively soiled or predominantly ineligible, they will not be processed. Drop-offs of bulk quantities will require completion of a Refund Declaration. This form is available at the Gate House, please ask the attendant for assistance.

Frequently Asked Questions

We're reviewing our Frequently Asked Questions. More information to come soon.

What do I do if my bin isn't emptied on my scheduled day?

Our hard working Waste Services team and contractors work hard to make up for any un-scheduled disruptions to our collection services. Please leave your bin on the kerb for the next business day. If your bin still hasn't been emptied by the next day, please contact our Waste Services team.

What can I put in my recycling bin?

Great question, and it's important to make an effort to not contaminate your recycling bin because just one contaminated bin can cause an entire rubbish truck to go to landfill. The Recycle Right website can assist you to find out what goes in your recycling bin.
