“When is my bin collected?’ is one of the most frequently asked questions by Redland residents.
To assist residents, Redland City Council has launched a ‘When Is My Bin Day?’ calendar, which can be accessed on your desktop, mobile, tablet and is printer-friendly.
Redland City Acting Mayor Wendy Boglary said the city-wide initiative was in response to community feedback and would significantly reduce the number of customer service inquiries received by Council.
“One of the first things new residents – or those moving within the Redlands – want to know is when their general waste, recyclable and green waste bins are collected,” Cr Boglary said.
“The online calendar will provide them with that information, 24/7 and will include updates to any changes to Council’s waste collection services.
“Simply choose your address from the menu and your bin days appear. Gone are the days of checking which bins your neighbours put out and the whole street getting it wrong.”
Council provides five days a week of residential waste collection services to both mainland and island properties, over 10 collection runs.
Fortnightly recycling collections are alternated with green waste collection (on the mainland).
Cr Boglary said the mobile friendly solution would make it easier for residents and newcomers to our beautiful part of the world to play their part in keeping it beautiful.
“Ultimately we want to help encourage residents to maximise use of their recycling and green waste bins so that recoverable items don’t end up in landfill.
“The online ‘When Is My Bin Day?’ calendar will make it easy for everyone to always know which bins to put out and when,” Cr Boglary said.
