Changes to your extra recycling bin service

Supplementary rates notice

Council will send supplementary rates notices to residents in November 2019. It will notify residents that a $30 charge will be applied to their regular rates payment based on changes to the extra recycling bin service.

Changes to the service

The introduction of a user-pays charge for extra recycling bins is an option for residents needing more recycling space. It will also recoup service delivery costs without imposing on other ratepayers.

From 1 October 2019, Council introduced a charge of $30 per year for residential properties that have a second recycling bin.

Council sent a letter to around 16,500 property owners asking if:

  • You want to keep the bin at a charge of $30 per year
  • You want to return the bin
  • You do not have a second recycling bin at the property

Where Council did not receive a response, we assumed the property owner did not want to keep the extra bin. Council then made two attempts to retrieve the extra bin between 19 August - 13 September 2019 on recycling collection day.

Where we couldn’t retrieve the bin, a pro-rata charge would apply for at least 6 months from 1 October 2019.
