One bin too many?
When the amount of space in the bins is just not enough, you have a couple of options. You can either beg for space in your neighbours bin and this might work if you don't do it very often, or you can ask Council's contractor (SOLO) to supply additional bins and have them emptied for a small additional cost.
Currently the rate is : 140L Blue waste bin $122 per calendar year (or $2.34/wk), 240L yellow-lid recyclables or organics bins $82 per calendar year (or $3.15/fortnight). While some 700 households already do this it seems that some people have been having additional bins collected at no extra cost. This will affect about 100 households.
