Do you care for the environment and want to reduce the amount of waste you send to landfill?
City of Ryde residents now have the opportunity to down size their garbage bin to the new smarter 80L garbage bin, and help to create a Smarter, Cleaner, Greener place to live.
Reducing our waste and increasing recycling is one of the most important things we can do to lessen our reliance on landfills, conserve our natural resources and create a cleaner community.
If you live in a house, duplex, or villa you can downsize your standard 140L garbage bin to a smaller 80L garbage bin. Downsizing to a smaller 80L garbage bin and switching to an Eco Service not only saves you money ($62 each year), but also reduces your impact on the environment.
Please note: 80L bins are not available for Unit or apartment complexes that have a shared bin service.
Additional Recycle and Garden Organics bins are a cheap alternative
If you wish to recycle more of your waste, additional recycling or garden organics bins are available for less than a dollar per week.
Create more space in your bin by using a compost bin or worm farm
An innovative way to reduce your bin capacity requirements is by using a compost bin and / or worm farm for suitable food scraps. For more information on Council’s subsidised compost bins and worm farms please visit the Compost Bins and Worm Farms page.
