Red-lidded general waste bins
If you are receiving Council's waste service for the first time your new waste bin will have a red lid. Existing dark green lidded waste bins that are lost, stolen or damaged and need repair will also be replaced with a red-lidded general waste bin.
Red-lidded waste bins will align Darebin with the Australian Standard. This is a planned action in Darebin’s Waste and Recycling Strategy (visible on our Council Strategies page) and a requirement of the State government policy. Visit the Recycling Victoria page for more information.
There is no change to the collection frequency as a result of this change.
