Your Green Lidded Bin

Green Lidded BinYour Green Lidded Bin is a 240L bin, collected fortnightly.


This garden organics collection service allows residents to divert garden waste from around the home and away from landfill, thereby reducing the production of the greenhouse gas methane. 


The recovered garden waste will be processed into a range of mulch products. This process meets AS4454-2012 Australian standards.
