Bin placement and use
Placing your garbage and recyling bins in the correct position on the street makes them easily accessible for bin collectors. Incorrect placement may lead to your bin being unable to be emptied.
Correct placement includes:
- Wheels are away from the kerb
- Front of bin is 10-100cm from kerb
- Lid is fully shut
- Bin is easily accessible
Avoid these bin placements
The wheels are facing the wrong way for pick-up. Make sure bin is not overfull and that bags are not placed on the footpath. Don't place bin behind parked cars or other objects that make collection difficult.
