Green waste bins


Green waste bins are available through the ACT Government with applications for Hamilton Park residents to be made via the Strata Manager. Hamilton Park owners are able to apply for a green waste bin at a one-off cost of $50 to be paid by the applicant. Unit numbers will be placed on each green waste bin for identification purposes at a cost of $3.05 per number.


  • Owners can make an application for a green waste bin through the contact page.
  • Applications for a green waste bin need to include your full name, unit number and best
    contact details.
  • The application cost ($50) and numbering cost (%3.05 per number) will be invoiced to you
    via your next Strata levy account.
  • Residents who are not owners but wish to order a green waste bin will need to discuss their
    application with the unit owner.


  • Individual units are responsible for the storage of green waste bins within the fence
    perimeter of the unit (i.e. not on common property and not on the main driveway).
  • Individual units are responsible for compliance with the ACT Government’s rules and
    regulations regarding use of green waste bins. More information can be found online.

    Individual units are responsible for placing green waste bins on the verge of the Hamilton
    Park complex on Cossington Smith Crescent for collection.

    can be reported to ACT NoWaste online to arrange
  • Any non-compliance with the rules outlined here will be considered by the Hamilton Park
    Executive Committee.

DO NOT put Moth Vine (Araujia sericifera) weeds and pods into the green waste.

There are some exceptions to putting garden waste n the green waste bins or skips. One that has been seen around the edges of Hamilton Park is Moth Vine. This vine’s fruit resembles chokos but the pod is filled with hundreds of toxic seeds. And the weed itself is also toxic to humans and animals. Take care if handling / removing.

If you find this weed in or around your home, do not just yank it out. You should wear personal protective equipment when handling this weed. See For more detail on the weed and how to handle it if you find it on your property, see the NSW Weed Wise page for information on the weed and removal techniques, or contact a gardening company. If on ACT government land, contact ACT government through Fix My Street and place information on the Canberra Nature Map site if inclined.

Any additional questions or concerns can be made through the contact page.
Thank you
