How is garbage collection done in oz?

In Australia you put your garbage out on the foot path at night in a wheely bin and a garbage truck picks it up early in the morning. Every two weeks another bin with recycling rubbish glass cans paper plastic bottles etc gets picked up. Some councils have a third bin for garden waste such as lawn clippings weeds branches etc which goes to huge mulching plants. every 4 months there is a special garbage pickup for things like fridges old furniture anything that builds up in the back yard but is too big to put in a bin aside from toxic chemicals.
