Campaspe Shire residents now have until Friday to make their new bin choices.March 5, 2014 4:50am
Campaspe Shire residents have until Friday to finalise their choice of waste, recycling and garden organics bins.
More than 8000 bin choice forms have been returned since council distributed information packs last month, but with replies still awaited from many households, the deadline has been extended to March 7.
The choices are either a new standard service, comprising an 80-litre waste bin, 240-litre recycling bin and 240-litre garden organics bin or a pick and mix list to suit the residents’ particular requirements.
Examples of the bins are on display at council service centres in Kyabram, Tongala, Rushworth, Echuca and Rochester to help residents with their choices.
Cr Greg Toll said so far more than half the households had selected the smaller 80-litre waste bin, 35 per cent had selected the larger 360-litre recycling bin and 44 per cent had selected a garden organics bin.
‘‘I encourage residents who may want to ‘just keep their current service’ to also complete the bin choice form as this will ensure their preference is captured and bins are not exchanged,’’ Cr Toll said.
