Waste Collection

FRWA logo

Waste collection is managed by The Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority (FRWA).  FRWA was formed by Alexandrina Council, City of Victor Harbor, Kangaroo Island Council and Yankalilla District Council, to provide sustainable and cost effective waste management and recycling services for its communities.

FRWA have a fleet of environmentally friendly, high performance waste collection vehicles and commenced with the provision of all kerbside collection services for the mainland Councils from 1 July 2011.

Fortnightly Kerbside Waste Collection

A fortnightly kerbside waste collection schedule will be introduced in the City of Victor Harbor from 1 July 2019.

Working towards a better future

Local landfills are full and the State Waste Levy is significant, plus the cost to transport waste outside of the Fleurieu region is continually growing. However, it was the environmental factors that motivated the Council's decision to introduce fortnightly kerbside waste collection. We have a responsibility to work towards a better future for the next generations, and introducing measures to reduce waste to landfill will help us do this.

The City of Victor Harbor has been keenly watching the impact fortnightly waste collection has been having in neighbouring councils of Alexandrina and Yankalilla. Following one year of fortnightly kerbside collection, the Alexandrina Council area achieved a 20% reduction in waste to landfill, and green waste and recyclables increased by 63% and 31% repsectively.

Supporting our community transition to the new system

There will be a number of initiatives introduced to support the community transition to the new system.

A community education and awareness program will commence soon with the support of the Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority (FRWA).  It will include composting workshops with ABC Gardening Australia’s Sophie Thomson, information sessions hosted by FRWA’s education officer, production of a new recycling and disposal guide for households and small business that will be sent to households with 2019/20 waste collection calendars.

Frequently Asked Questions

A frequently asked questions fact sheet has been developed to help answer common questions about the transition to fortnightly kerbside waste collection. Download it at the link below or collect a hard copy from the Council Office at 1 Bay Road, Victor Harbor.


Which bin goes out?

Under the new fortnightly kerbside collection schedule, residents will put at least one bin out every week. For example, one week the general waste and green organics bin will go out, and the following week the recycling bin is collected.

The best way to check which bin goes out when is in the kerbside collection calendar or by using the great search tool the Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority has developed which can be accessed from Council’s website.
