Change to bin lid colours

Council is progressively changing over waste wheelie bin green lids with red lids to comply with the Australian Standard. This is a long term project with exchanges only being undertaken as maintenance issues occur with the existing lids:

  • Red – general waste
  • Yellow – recycling
  • Lime green – garden organics

This means eventually general waste bins on the Coast will be consistent with other parts of the country, making them easier for people to use.
