Next step in Lake Mac's 3-Bin Waste Service

Consultation has concluded for this stage of the 'Next step in Lake Mac's 3-bin waste service' project.

Lake Mac is preparing for the move to the next step in our 3-bin waste service, when all food scraps can go in your green waste bin with your garden waste.

When this next step happens, green waste bins will be emptied each week and garbage bins and recycling bins will be emptied each fortnight (on alternate weeks). This will lead to a big reduction in the amount of waste sent to landfill, and will allow us to manage our community’s waste in the most cost effective way for the long term.

We would like to thank everyone who participated

We would like to thank everyone who participated in our surveys. Through our ‘food scraps shift to green bins’ community survey in late 2015 and the 'branding and messaging survey' earlier this year, residents provided some very helpful responses about the type of information needed to support the change. These responses have helped shape a communications strategy for the change in service.

To learn more about how we have used your feedback, please review the summary in the document library.
