New Re­cy­cle Bins Are Be­ing Rolled Out

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - News -

Hills Shire res­i­dents will soon have brand new yel­lowlid re­cy­cling bins as part of The Hills Shire Coun­cil’s new waste and re­cy­cling col­lec­tion con­tract with Clean­away. Many of the Shire’s re­cy­cling bins are reach­ing the end of their usefulness, and re­place­ment of all yel­low-lid bins at one time is the most cost-ef­fec­tive and sus­tain­able way to en­sure all Coun­cil’s bins re­main in a ser­vice­able con­di­tion. All re­cy­cle bins will be re­placed re­gard­less of their cur­rent age or con­di­tion. Red-lid and green-lid bins will not be af­fected by the new con­tract.

The re­place­ment process is ex­pected to take up to eight weeks to com­plete and will be­gin in Au­gust. New yel­low-lid re­cy­cling bins will be de­liv­ered to homes be­fore old yel­low-lid re­cy­cling bins are re­moved.

All old re­cy­cle bins must be pre­sented for col­lec­tion as, af­ter the roll out is com­plete, only new bins, which are iden­ti­fied by bear­ing Coun­cil’s new logo will be emp­tied. All yel­low-lid re­cy­cling bins that are col­lected will be re­cy­cled. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, visit www.the­hills.nsw.gov.au or call the Waste Hot­line on 1800 623 895.
