WILLOUGHBY City residents started receiving their new wheelie bins last week.

All ratepayers should receive delivery of their brand new red and yellow lidded bins by March 31.

Once the new bin is received, old bins will be picked up on the regular collection day and taken for recycling by SULO.

The new bins, made from 30 per cent recycled plastic, will have the same capacity, with the recycling and vegetation bin coming in at 240 litres and the waste bin at 140 litres. All three will be emptied weekly.

Willoughby Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney said the bins were being replaced due to age.

“Bins only have a lifespan of about 10 years and by replacing the red and yellow lid bins, the council is ensuring Willoughby residents are provided with a quality waste collection service,” she said.
