Moreland City Council Says...

Overall garbage tonnages have continued to reduce over the last 4 years, despite an increasing number of households being serviced. The cost of processing garbage increased by 3% during 2018/19 which has resulted in an overall increase in the cost of providing the service. Moreland's waste minimisation strategy, that encourages the use of the 80 litre capacity bins, has contributed to a continued reduction in garbage tonnages.
