A smarter, greener, safer, cleaner waste service

Our community wants to reduce waste and the impact it has on the environment. Together we can champion the war on waste.

Our priority is to improve environmental outcomes and keep costs down so we’ve rolled out a safer, cleaner and smarter waste solution.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Environmental benefits

We have a four bin separation system to sort the waste at the source giving us the best chance to recycle and reuse household waste. 

However, all our general household waste (red bin) is now also going to a processing plant instead of straight to landfill. This extracts any recyclable materials and processes the remaining waste, further reducing the amount of waste going to landfill. 

This avoids the equivalent of over 43,200 tonnes of CO2 each year – that’s like taking 8,400 cars off the road. 

We also have a fleet of brand new trucks with the latest technology, reducing emissions and fully enclosed hoppers to prevent litter and reduce odour. 

We are continuing to protect our very good quality vegetation by maintaining a separate green vegetation bin, ensuring that our garden waste can be returned to the earth as commercial grade compost and soil conditioners.
