What happens if my bin has been half-emptied?

Share Tweet Print More Options

Overfilling or compacting materials into the bin generally cause half-emptied bins. The force applied by the truck mechanism during emptying will not remove items that have been compacted into the bin. Loosely separate the remaining materials in the bin and report the half-emptied bin to Council. All half-emptied bin requests are recorded by Council and will not return to properties who repeatedly overfill or compact their bins.
