Fortnightly General Waste Collections:

A pivotal change in the waste management strategy is the move to fortnightly collections for general waste (red landfill bins). This initiative is designed to encourage residents to reduce waste and increase their recycling efforts.

Weekly FOGO and Recycling Collections:

The green FOGO (Food Organics, Garden Organics) bins and yellow recycling bins will continue to be collected weekly. This frequency ensures efficient management of organic waste and recyclables, helping to keep the community clean and reducing the burden on landfill sites.

Adapting to the New Waste Collection Schedule

Effective Waste Segregation:

Proper segregation of waste is now more critical than ever. Residents need to ensure that recyclable materials and organic waste are placed in the correct bins to reduce the volume of general waste.

Community Engagement:

The council frequently organizes

community engagement programs focused on waste management and recycling. These programs are excellent opportunities for residents to learn and contribute to the community's sustainability goals.
