Less Waste Incentive

We want to encourage less waste going to landfill. So if your household produces less waste, we are offering a fortnightly service that can save you money on next year’s rates bill.

How the fortnightly collection works

Put your wheelie bin out every second week, and we will check how often it is emptied using the microchip (the RFID tag) in the bin. If it's 26 weeks or less for the year (or equivalent to), then a remission will be applied to your next year’s rates bill. To be eligible for the less waste incentive, you must sign up before 31 December, please only sign up once. Please note that the discount will be applied to your rates bill for the following financial year (1 July 2022 - 30 June 2023). 

We suggest using our fortnightly calendar to remember which weeks to present your bin at the kerb. We have recently changed the 2022 fortnightly schedule. If you printed our fortnightly calendar before 27 July 2021, please download the new version.
