You can downsize your general waste bin from a 140L to an 80L and reduce the waste charge on your annual rate notice.
You can request a smaller bin at any time and receive a pro-rata credit on your next rates bill. These pro rata discounts apply for bins ordered after 22 June.
The annual waste rate charge saving will be $78.
You will receive a supplementary rate notice showing your adjusted waste charge. This will be calculated pro rata and backdated. Supplementary notices are issued every 3–4 months.
Over the next 4 to 6 weeks we’ll be gradually replacing bins so please continue to use your current bin as you usually do. The only thing that we need you to do is to leave your bin out for an extra day each time you put it out for collection. This means that when we do come around to replace your bin we’ll be collecting your old bin.
When your new bin arrives it will have your street number on it (and be smaller) so you’ll know it’s yours.
Regardless of when your bin is delivered, you will still receive the discount on your rates.
