There is an additional charge for each extra bin, which will be placed on your rates notice. Fees for 2019/2020 are:
- Additional red lid garbage bin (140L) - $200.00 per financial year.
- Additional yellow lid recycling bin (240L) - $60.00 per financial year.
- Additional green lid green waste bin (240L) - $64.00 per financial year.
Did you know?
50% of the waste in your red bin is food waste? To reduce the need for an additional red lid garbage bin which will save you money, you may like to consider purchasing a compost bin or worm farm.
For more information, please contact Council's Waste Hotline on 9847 4856 or email email@example.com
Additional waste and recycling can also be taken to a Waste Management Centre. To find the location and charges of your nearest centre visit the SUEZ website or phone 13 13 35.
