The Council has social, economic, health, environmental and legislative waste management obligations and provides several services for the appropriate disposal of solid waste:
This includes shopping bags, fruit and veggie bags, bread bags, biscuit and confectionery packaging, rice and pasta packets, plastic newspaper wrap and frozen food bags.
