The great green organics bin and Mini Muncher kitchen caddy giveaway is on. It's all about providing residents with the tools to help divert precious resources from landfill.
Organic waste makes up about 50% of the material residents send to landfill each week. Every 10% reduction in landfill could save around $285,000 in solid waste charges. This money could be reinvested in more facilities and services for our community.
This initiative has been made possible through a partnership between Council, Solo Resource Recovery and Green Industries SA.
This convenient bench top bin allows you to recycle organic material and food scraps with ease. Best of all, the compostable bags can be placed straight into your green organics bin for recycling into nutrient-rich compost based products. Placing food scraps into the green organics bin is much better than letting them go to landfill.
If you do not have a green organics bin, Council now supplies green organics bins free of charge to City of Tea Tree Gully residents.
All bins provided by Council remain the property of City of Tea Tree Gully and must stay with the home should you decide to move.
Households can request an additional green organic bin and collection to assist with managing their waste and recycling.
Fees are payable for an additional bin and collection. This fee includes the one-off cost of the bin hire as well as a yearly collection fee. In some cases no charge may apply.
If your green organics bin needs repairing or has been stolen, complete the damaged bin form or contact Solo Resource Recovery on 8159 5090.
If your bin can't be repaired, we will replace your existing green organics bin with a Council supplied bin.
All bins supplied by Council remain the property of City of Tea Tree Gully and must stay with the home should you decide to move.
