The current cost-of-living pressures make it an apt time for households to check they have the right kerbside wheelie bins for their circumstances.

Mayor Karen Williams said Redland City Council actively supported households to reduce waste, to recycle well and maintain a cost-effective recycling service for the whole of Redlands Coast.

“As part of this, Council offers a flexible ‘bin menu’ where residents can save money and reduce waste to landfill by getting the right bin set for their home,” Cr Williams said.

Some options to get a better bin bundle include:

• Offsetting the cost of a new household green waste bin (mainland only) by down-sizing to a 140-litre red-lid general waste bin when you order;

• Upsize your recycling bin from a 240-litre to a 340-litre for a one-off $32 establishment fee and no additional ongoing costs to your rates; and

• Be rewarded for reducing waste to landfill. If you’re not filling your standard 240-litre general waste bin each week, consider downsizing to a 140-litre waste bin and save on the annual charges. A one-off $32 establishment fee applies

The establishment fee covers the cost of the bin, delivery fee and administration costs.
