I have a normal household wast one and a yellow-lidded one for recyclable rubbish. I live alone so this is more than plenty for me!! I do not have enormous amounts of any type of rubbish and often allow my neighbours to fill my bins if they need the room!!
We have three - recycle, green and general rubbish. You know it's interesting we fill all these. When I was young we only had a smsller galvanised iron bin. We didn't need a recycle bin because we reused everything we could. We used to crush paper into briquettes to burn in the fire. We didn't need a green bin because we made compost. Every bag and every piece of string was saved for later.
Got the general rubbish and recycling in Frankston, Vic, however we have to pay for a green waste bin and tenants apparently can't pay for it, and none of the landlords in my block of units can agree on who will pay, as council rules decree the bin has to be numbered to an individual unit. So we go without a green waste bin.
Two bins like most of you. I wish the MCC would supply a green bin though. We inner city residents have no extra means for disposing of our garden waste, and even tho some are small gardens we still have to get rid of our weeds, clippings and trimmings too... must investigate this again hummmm
We receive 3 from our council. We only have 1 plastic bag of rubbish per week, for the small red lidded bin.
We have 2 large green ones, that I fill both of, once a fortnight, (we didnít have to pay anything for the 2nd green bin, from our council in Sydney, NSW, & we usually fill the yellow lidded recycling bin, once a fortnight. We also have a 2nd yellow lidded bin, in case we needed it, which was also free from our council. All food scrapes go into our compost, except meat rubbish. And all the fat from the meat, which I cut off, pre cooked, we feed to the fish in the river! Itís also ok to fish the fish cooked meat, if we have some weíre throwing out, which is hardly ever!
PS: We now have a 3rd green Council bin, free of change, which is nearly filled every fortnight, as we have a LOT of gums trees around our house, which are always shredding bark, leaves, & twigs every day, & sometimes also small branches even fall off!,
The Council provides us with two Bins, one Bin is for recyclable rubbish (cardboard paper plastic etc.) and the other is for Household Rubbish (non recyclable. The recyclable bin being emptied every fortnight.
The council provides two bins - one for general waste and the other for recyclables. You can also pay for an extra "green" bin which I have done as it gets rid of all the garden waste, leaves and, particularly in Queensland, palm fronds!
Our local council provides us with 2 bins, one for general waste and the other for recycling products. Council does random spot checks of the recycling bins to ensure the appropriate waste is in the correct bins and I was happy to see that our bin was one of the few in the street which received a congratulatory sticker across the bin lid for proper recycling.
