Thank you for embracing the changes to the kerbside bin collection service.
Together we have made a positive impact on the environment since the launch of the four bin system. In the first two months of service we have saved 1,332 tonnes of organic waste from landfill, which has resulted in a reduction of 2,158 tonnes of CO₂ equivalent in greenhouse gas emissions. That would provide enough electricty to power 366 houses for one year.
The public place glass bins diverted over 74,000 kilograms of glass from landfill which has been used in Victorian roads and constuction.
We look forward to sharing more updates with you.
