Reducing waste to landfill
We can all generate less rubbish and reduce waste to landfill by being a smart shopper and recycling and composting all we can.
See below for tips on how this could be achieved.
If you reduce your waste, you could downsize from your 140 litre bin to a 80 litre bin and save $53.35 a year off your Council waste charge!
Contact Council’s Environmental Education Officer to discuss whether an 80 litre bin will work for your family.
