Under new rules announced by the Victorian Government, all councils must move to a 4-bin waste service to reduce waste to landfill, improve the quality of recyclables, and create a more sustainable and reliable waste system. In response to this, Merri-bek City Council is implementing changes to their waste service including the number of bins used by households, bin size, and how often bins are collected across the municipality. The changes will also affect hard waste collection and how ratepayers are charged for the service.
