The number of kerbside garbage and recycling collection bins missed remained consistent in 2019-20 with the previous year. Conversations are continuing with the contractor to reduce this number. The number of scheduled kerbside garbage and recycling collection bin lifts decreased overall as a result of the introduction of fortnightly garbage collection services in Anglesea following the implementation of the Food Organics / Garden Organics Program (FOGO).
