Our new waste service is coming

Council is encouraging people to waste less and recycle more when our new waste management service begins.

From 1 July, new service provider, SOLO Resource Recovery, will be responsible for Council's kerbside waste collection.

As part of the new service, residents will be issued with a new 140L red bin, and 240L yellow bin. Residents who have opted for the Green Organics service will also receive a new 240L green bin and kitchen caddy. If you are interested in the green organics service please contact SOLO Resource Recovery on 08 8295 5077.  Each new bin is fitted with a unique bin identification code, making it easy to track misplaced or stolen bins, as well as allowing the contractor to verify bins that have been serviced, and presented for collection.

Delivery of new green organics bins will begin on 18 June. New red waste bins and yellow recycling bins will be delivered between 25 July and 14 August. Removal of your old bins will begin on 20 August and it is anticipated to take several weeks for all bins to be collected. From 20 August we ask that your old bins be placed on the kerb as per your normal weekly/fortnightly collection for collection by the contractor.  This is a significant job and we appreciate your patience throughout this period.  

You will also receive an education kit with the delivery of your new red and yellow bin. The kit includes a reusable coffee cup, biodegradable pen made from fully recycled material, a tote bag and fact sheets to provide guidance around what goes in what bin and a colouring in competition. We hope you find the contents informative and useful.

Waste calendars advising of your waste collection days will be distributed to residents in township areas in coming weeks.

Please sort your waste correctly and help achieve our goal of wasting less and recycling more. Together we can make a difference.
