IN three weeks people in Belconnen will be able to use their green waste bins, and so far, more than 4000 people have signed up for the service.
Member for Ginninderra Yvette Berry says first collections in Belconnen will start on September 3, providing a fortnightly service to help residents keep their gardens clean, tidy and looking amazing.
Residents including those living in the older suburbs such as Holt, Cook, Kaleen, Macquarie and Hawker as well as newer suburbs such as Lawson can register to receive a green bin for a one-off $50 fee, or free for eligible concession card holders.
Residents registering between August 13 and 21 will receive their bin between September 3 and 14. Following this initial period, residents will receive bins within five working days of registering.
