It took over 2.5 years of research, modelling and costing. We considered over 65 different combinations of waste service option. Each variation included collection frequency, materials collected and treatment options.
Cost was not the only consideration. Risks and benefits of each combination were also evaluated.
We presented the three final options to residents and received an unprecedented response. 9,000 submissions (27% of households) responded.
Over two thirds of residents supported the introduction of some form of green bin. With most (46%) supporting ‘Option B- Green Bin for Garden Waste Only’.
So far, the new green bin service has diverted 9,000 tonnes of garden vegetation from landfill per year.
Our contract allows for a green bin service to be available to all households. This means all households will have to pay for the service.
We encourage residents to use the bins for any garden waste that they don’t compost. This includes noxious weeds.
