    Changes to General Waste Bin Lids

    Our contractor Cleanaway will be changing the colour of your general waste bin lid as part of a WA Waste Authority funded initiative which will ensure we comply with the required Australian Standard.

    The changeover program will commence on 11 February 2019, taking approximately 6-8 weeks to cover the whole of the Shire of Murray.

    To ensure the changeover takes place as smoothly as possible:

    • On collection days from 11 February 2019 leave your bins out on the verge until 5:00pm until your lid colour has been changed
    • Continue to use your bin as you normally would

    If for any reason your bin lid has not been changed by 31 March 2019 or if you have any questions about the change, please call the Shire’s Waste Management team on (08) 9531 7777.

    All existing lids will be recycled and the material will be used in the manufacture of new bins.
