Rural residents in the city of Lismore are about to get the bin with the yellow lid.
A regular part of waste disposal life for those living in town, the recycling bins with their distinctive yellow lids are presently being delivered to rural residents in preparation for kerbside collection which should start in mid-February.
Our waste audit results show that almost 40 per cent of rural waste is recyclable, said Lismore City Councilss waste manager Phil Klepzig.
The yellow bins will be emptied fortnightly supplementing the rural weekly waste service.
Northern Rivers Waste will write to rural residents telling them when to put out their bin for collection.
The recycling drop off centres in Brewster Street opposite the Lismore Square and at the Wyrallah Rd waste facility will continue operating for rural residents without that bin with the yellow lid.
