Keep rubbish and recycling bins apart

When leaving garbage and recycling bins for collection on your roadside, remember the old song, "Don't fence me in"!

Residents are being asked to leave at least a one metre space between each bin and other objects such as light and power poles; permanent building features; and vehicles; to enable the mechanical arm of the garbage truck to pick-up the bin.

Also, ensure that bins are not placed under or beside trees as this also blocks the truck from swinging the bins up into the truck.
