Wyndham Council Says NO to Fourth Bin.

No to fourth bin

The council have made a decision not to impose the State Government’s introduction of the option of a fourth bin for some Council areas.

Wyndham Council announced the decision to residents today saying that they will engage the community before any changes are considered to waste services in the area. 
Council also believes a state-of-the-art alternative waste processing facility in Werribee would be a better option for residents and may also be more cost-effective. 
The council have also said that as a result of the new facility, they will be able to eliminate food and green waste at the upgraded landfill. In addition, they will also be able to support Victoria’s goal of reducing waste to 80 percent by 2030.

The facility was announced in June of 2021 and Wyndham Cr Adele Hegedich was Mayor at the time when she said: “This is a game-changer for Wyndham and Victoria.”

“The community’s expectations around landfill and waste treatment have changed and more environmentally sustainable solutions are required.”

“In the past, rubbish bins would be wheeled out to the kerbside each week and people wouldn’t give it a second thought, but things have changed. There is now a greater focus on what happens to the waste once it is collected – as a society we have an obligation to look for greener solutions.”

“Instead of requiring households to separate organics and food from general waste – this new facility would provide us with the ability to remove the green waste at the landfill. Equally, for Councils who do require the separation at kerbside – any non-compliance can be corrected at our landfill.”
