In January and February, as part of the Yorke Peninsula Council’s new kerbside waste management contract, two new wheelie bins (one red-lidded waste bin and one yellow-lidded recycling bin) were delivered to all eligible properties within the Council area.
These new bins replaced the old bins at each property, which were meant to be surrendered to be collected and taken away to be recycled. It appears that some residents have continued to use their old bins despite communications.
The Yorke Peninsula Council has recently instructed SUEZ, its kerbside waste management contractor, to cease servicing all old bins; therefore, residents must ensure they are only using their new bins from now on, as any old bins placed out for collection will not be serviced.
If your property is eligible to receive the waste and recycling collection service (you can confirm this by checking to see whether or not you pay the service charge on your rates notice or via a tax invoice), but you have not received new bins please contact the Yorke Peninsula Council on 08 8832 0000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
