To meet State Government requirements, Council is required to introduce a mixture of kerbside glass bins and transfer station drop off points to suit our rural population and organisational needs.

These changes will take place from 1 July 2025, when the current contract expires, so there is still ample time to prepare for the changes.

We now need our community’s help in assisting Council determine the best kerbside collection configuration for when we roll out the new four-bin system in July 2025. The new glass bin will be collected monthly.

Using our current bin system as the base case, three alternate four-bin configuration options have been determined by a consultant - listed as ‘Scenario 1, 2 & 3’ (see table). We want your help to determine which scenario you would like to see by completing the poll below.
