Old and new general waste bin

From this week, we are no longer emptying old dark green general waste bins.

Why did we change the colour of the general waste bin?

Every Council in Victoria is required to transition to a standardised bin system with uniform bin colours by 2027.

This is part of the Victorian Government’s Circular Economy Strategy to cut waste and boost reuse and recycling. The aim is to have the same household bin system, no matter where you live.

Old dark green general waste bins will be recycled into new bins.
