Multi Unit Developments

If you live in a multi-unit development and want a green bin, please read the following eligibility information:

If you currently have individual mobile garbage bins for domestic waste and recycling services, store and present your own bin for collection you may register for the service and receive one green waste bin.

This applies to both kerbside presentations and those residents who present inside the complex outside their own residences.

If you utilise a shared service (e.g. waste hopper) then the body corporate/strata manager will need to contact Access Canberra on 13 22 81 and enquire about the allocation for the complex you live in.

The allocation process will take into account various factors to ensure the right number of green waste bins are provided.
