Today ACT Labor announced that green bins will be rolled out to all of Canberra within the next term of Government, if Labor is re-elected.
Following the pilot in Kambah/Weston Creek and Tuggeranong, Belconnen will be the next to receive a green bin in mid-2018, followed by the Inner North, Inner South and Woden in 2019 and Hall and Gungahlin in 2020.
This is great news and follows a long period of strong community feedback and desire for green bins. You told me loud and clear in my survey as well as at the shops and at your door that you want a green bin in your home – ACT Labor will deliver one.
The scheme remains opt-in and will simply require a $50 deposit.
