Garbage Bin Selection

The Kitchen Scraps and Garbage Program allows you to pick the size of your Grey Bin for garbage, based upon the amount of waste you produce.

Changing the Size of Your Bin

You can request to have the size of your grey bin for garbage changed.  Here are the sizes and collection costs:

Grey Bin Sizes

 

  • Standard 120 L: This will be a good fit for most households in Victoria.  Your annual cost will be $211.02.
  • Small 80 L: If you are an avid recycler and currently have a very small amount of garbage, this is a good option for you. Your annual collection cost will be $184.02, a cost savings of $27.00 when compared to the standard 120L grey bin option.
  • Large 180 L: If you have a large family or often need extra bags of garbage to be picked up, this will be the best size for you.  Your annual collection cost will be $235.02, $24.00 more than the standard 120L grey bin option.

Things to Consider:

  • Pick up every two weeks:  The new service will pick up garbage and kitchen scraps every two weeks, not every week like the old program.
  • Holiday Pick-up:  Please remember when a collection day falls on a statutory holiday, the two week period could stretch to 16 or 17 days.
