You will get a new bin if you:
One new bin will be delivered for each Domestic Waste Charge paid for your property. You can see your charges on your rates notice or confirm the charge through your Property Manager.
If you live in a flat or unit (with shared bins) anywhere within the Council area or if you live a house in the Roselands and Canterbury Wards you will not be affected by this replacement.
There are no changes to your yellow recycling or green garden bins.
Bins will be replaced between May and September 2018. We will be replacing around 1,000 a day.
There are a number of reasons why the red bins are being replaced. They include:
The new bins have a capacity of 140 litres which is a little larger (20 litres) than the old 120 litre bins. The extra space will help during peak periods when more waste is generated. The new bin is a little wider too meaning there's more area touching the ground, which improves its stability.
Keep using your current (120 litre) bin as usual. Put it out for collection each week on your usual service day until you receive more information or the bin arrives.
Your new bin will have a sticker with your address on it. When the bin arrives:
Leave your old bin on the kerb on the collection day after your new bin arrives.
The old bin will be collected and taken apart for reuse and recycling. Some of the plastic will be used to make new bins.
No. The old bins will be removed as part of the replacement process.
After the bins have been replaced in your area only the new ones with the CB City branding will be collected and emptied.
If your old bin hasn't been removed within a week of receiving your new one please contact Council through the details below. The old bin will no longer be emptied by the garbage truck so please don't fill it with rubbish.
New bins will be delivered to all houses in the affected areas that pay the Domestic Waste Charge. You will receive a new bin for every waste service being paid by your property. For example, if you have a granny flat it will only receive a new bin if an additional waste change is being paid.
If your property was accidentally missed and you see the neighbours on either side have their new bin, you can contact Council through the details below.
For safety reasons, please direct all questions through the contacts below rather than to truck drivers or the bin delivery team. Please contact Council's Waste Operations Team if you have any issues or questions. You can:
