The ACT Government has finally decided to roll out green waste bin services in southside suburbs but certain households will get it earlier than others.
In the past the ACT Labor government rejected the idea, saying it would cost too much to maintain but the Canberra Liberals announced before the last election that if they were elected they would implement the service. Labor announced the service would just be too costly.
Labor recently changed its mind and decided to provide the garden waste bin after requests from the people.
But not everyone will get the service automatically, only households that opt for the service and pay the once-off $50 deposit for the bin or concession card holders.
