BIN LID STICKER

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR GARDEN ORGANICS SERVICE

  • Place materials loosely in your bin – don’t squash your garden organics down.
  • Put sticks or dry leaves in the bottom of the bin before lawn clippings to prevent sticking.
  • The maximum weight is 80 Kg.
  • Place bins out regularly rather than wait for them to be full and possibly too heavy.
  • Try to mow your lawn when its dry or leave the lid ajar to reduce excess moisture.
  • You can drop off large items that don’t fit into your garden organics bin at one of the following local waste management facilities (fees apply):
