Let's get you on the map!
You’re interested in hosting a bin – that’s awesome! Here’s a bit more information about how it works.
The shared food waste wheelie bin is a maroon coloured 120 litre wheelie bin which can be readily kept in most rear lanes, side lanes and bin store areas. The wheelie bin is collected weekly with the food waste taken to the EarthPower biodigester in Camellia, Sydney for processing to make green energy and nutrient rich compost.
We need 10 households registering an interest in joining the bin in order to set up a new bin. They will be able to do this via this website when we publish the proposed bin location on our mapping.
If residents in your area have expressed an interested in joining a bin, we’ll get in touch with them and ask if they would like to join your proposed bin.
Otherwise, the best thing to do is to encourage your neighbours to register their interest. Other bin hosts have done this by discussing it with their neighbours and dropping flyers into letterboxes in their surrounding streets. Here’s a sample flyer which others have used.
