Improved waste collection

Three-bin system reduces landfill and environmental impact.

Parkes Shire Council has joined with other local government authorities in the NetWaste region to deliver improved waste collection services to recover more recyclables and organic material from entering the landfill stream by implementing a three bin waste collection system. This is great for the environment, reduces waste and encourages recycling and it saves ratepayers from increasing costs associated with landfill.

The new service provides a much improved environmental outcome and allows Council to meet the State government's goal of achieving 70% diversion of domestic waste going to landfill. All material from the green lid bin (food and garden waste) will be processed into mulch. The recycled material (yellow) will also be processed and manufactured into new products.

The new service has provided increased capacity for recycling (yellow lid bin) and food and garden waste (green lid bin) while still providing a garbage waste bin (red lid bin).
