STARTING from tomorrow (August 1), Belconnen households can register for a green bin with collections starting on September 3.
Member for Ginninderra Tara Cheyne says all Belconnen residents can opt-in for a one-off $50 payment to receive a green bin, with eligible concession card holders exempt from payment.
Ms Cheyne says results from the pilot service in Weston Creek and Tuggeranong have been very positive, with over 9700 residents signed up in Weston Creek and Kambah and 12,700 residents signed up in Tuggeranong as of June 30.
“As of the end of June 2018 over 3100 tonnes of green waste had been collected for processing and less than one per cent of contamination had been recorded,” she says.
“This is a great result and I look forward to seeing Belconnen households take advantage of the service which saves residents time and money, provides high quality compost products for landscaping, and reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill.”
