Compostable Kitchen Caddy Bags
Residents who have subscribed to the green organics bin service are able to place food scraps into their green organics bin. This food can be thrown directly into the bin or placed in a kitchen caddy. In 2016 Council provided 2000 kitchen caddies and compostable kitchen caddy bags to residents to encourage greater diversion of food waste from landfill. For information about where to purchase additional kitchen caddies or compostable kitchen caddy bags (compostable - NOT degradable or biodegrable)please refer to the following links or contact Council.

KERBSIDE BIN COLLECTION RULES

To make sure your bins are collected by Council, please ensure that:

  • There is one metre space between bins placed at the kerbside, as waste collectors' need to be able to pick bins up and place them down again.
  • Always put bins out with handles facing the house.
  • Do not place bins under trees that have overhanging branches, or behind parked cars.
  • Do not overfill your bins. Make sure your bins are free from contamination. If your bins contain contaminated materials they will not be emptied.
  • Place your bins on the kerbside by 6am on collection days.

PUBLIC HOLIDAYS

There will be no collections on Good Friday or Christmas Day. These collections will be on the closest working day, preceding these holidays. Notification of dates will be placed in the local media.
