Reducing Reliance on Plastic Workshop
Wingecarribee Shire Council offers a range of sizes and collection frequencies of red lidded bins to help residents better manage their waste:
Available bin sizes include: 80L, 140L, 240L, with the standard option being 80L.
While these bins are usually collected weekly,
residents can reduce costs by opting for a fortnightly collection of the 80L red lidded bin. Collection would be on the same day as the yellow lidded recycling bin.

Your red lidded bin is used to dispose of items that are ultimately destined for landfill, but this doesn't mean everything can go in these bins. The contents of these bins are still sorted to divert valuable resources from landfill and some waste types are an environmentally unsafe if sent to landfill.
