WHAT ARE THE THREE BINS?
FOOD AND ORGANICS (FOGO)
The organics bin is for any kind of food scraps (meat, fruit, vegetables, etc), garden waste (lawn clippings, prunings, etc) and even shredded paper, paper towel, serviettes and old pizza boxes. FOGO bins will be 240 litres and collected weekly.
Recycling includes steel, tin, aluminium cans, empty aerosols, clear, brown and green glass bottles and jars (no lids), plastic bottles and containers, cardboard, milk and juice cartons and newspapers, magazines and junk mail. Recycling bins will be 240 litres and collected fortnightly.
Landfill waste is non-organic and non-hazardous material such as nappies and sanitary waste, soft plastics, pet waste and kitty litter, mirrors, ceramics, cookware, clothing and drinking glasses. Landfill waste bins are either 140 litres or 240 litres and are collected weekly.
(Council-provided liners are made from cornstarch. Please don't use any other liner. When you run low on liners, contact Council for free delivery of a new roll. Liners will be provided ongoing as part of your Food and Garden Waste Service.)
