All Forbes Shire residents should now have three new bins as part of the new kerbside waste, recycling and food and organics collection services.
The last rubbish collection from old bins will be the week of March 28 to April 1 and the new bins will be collected from the week commencing April 4.
The frequency of collection will be weekly for the green lidded bin and alternate fortnights for both the red and yellow lidded bins.
JR Richards and Sons will collect the old bins following the commencement of the new service and this will take place on April 26, and Council asks for all old bins to be left upside down on the kerb for collection from the evening of April 25. Bins will not be collected the day of normal service.
Forbes Mayor Phyllis Miller said she encouraged any residents who had any
questions about the new bin service to call Council. “As like any new process, it can take a little while to adjust to but we are here to help you if you have any questions,” Mayor Miller said. “By using the recycling and food and garden waste collection services correctly, you are reducing the amount of garbage going to landfill.”
Residents are asked to contact Council’s Environmental Services and Planning Department on 6850 2344 if they have not received their new bins yet.
