Better Bins Program

We are changing the colour of your bin lids. This is being done as part of a state wide Better Bins Program.

These changes will occur between 28 April 2015 and 10 June 2015:

  • Your green-top general waste bin will get a new red lid
  • Your brown-top green waste bin will get a new lime green lid
  • Your yellow-top recycling bin stays the same

What do I need to do?

To ensure the changeover takes place as smoothly as possible, please leave your bins out on the verge until 5pm on collection days between 28 April 2015 and 10 June 2015. Unfortunately, the City is unable to guarantee the exact time or date your bin lids will be changed during these dates.

Once the lids have been changed, please continue to use your bin as you normally would.

My bin lid has not been changed, what do I do?

If your lid colours have not changed, please place your bins out the following collection until 5pm. Unfortunately, the City is unable to guarantee the exact time or date your bin lids will be changed during these dates.

If for any reason your bin lids have not been changed by 10 June 2015 or if you have any questions about the program, please contact the City’s Waste Management team on 9272 0605 or mail@bayswater.wa.gov.au

Why is this change happening?

These changes are happening as part of a WA Waste Authority funded Better Bins Program. This initiative has been designed to encourage increased recycling and reduce the amount of rubbish going to landfill. The new bin lids will bring us into line with the Australian standard for bin lid colours, which experience has shown helps to increase recycling rates and reduces contamination caused from placing waste into the wrong bins.

How is this program funded?

The bin lid change project is funded by the State Government's Waste Authority through the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Account. The City has received a grant of $713,760 to deliver the Better Bins program within the City of Bayswater.
