Security of Mobile Waste Bins
The Community Living Local Law Number 1 2018, clause 7.1 states that an occupier of land must ensure that any mobile waste bin put out on a road in order for its contents to be collected by or on behalf of Council is returned to that land no later than 12 noon on the day following that on which the contents of the mobile waste bin have been collected.
Please ensure that your mobile waste bins are returned to the correct property no later than 12 noon on the day following that on which the contents of the mobile waste bin have been collected.
Use of Mobile Waste Bins
When using your mobile waste bin, please ensure that you comply with the guidelines in relation to what you can place in your bins. It is an offence under the Environment Protection Act 1970 to place certain items into the incorrect bin, such as needles and dangerous goods or substances.
For more information on what you can or can’t put into your bins, or to discuss how to obtain a needle disposal kit, please contact Council.
The Community Living Local Law Number 1 2018, clause 7.2 also advises that;
- A person must not remove a mobile waste bin from the land to which it has been allocated by or on behalf of Council;
- A person must not use a mobile waste bin for any purpose other than the storage and disposal of waste material;
- Any person who is in possession of a mobile waste bin which is not at the property to which it has been allocated by Council must notify Council in writing of the location of the mobile waste bin and make it available for retrieval by Council in accordance with any direction of Council; and
- An authorised officer may enter any land or building in the municipal district at any reasonable time to retrieve any mobile waste bin which is present, or being used, on the land or in the building in breach of this clause.
