Do you need Bins ?

It seems that some residents do not have either one or both black recycling bins.  I would like to organise an additional supply from Pittwater Council.

Please contact me at cassgye@spin.net.au and indicate whether you require two bins or one only – paper or bottles.  They have different labels attached.  Once the bins are received I will email those who have replied and arrange collection or delivery.

Attached is the latest Recycling flyer for anyone who did not receive it in their P O Box. Just click the image to load the full version of the flyer.

Please read the information carefully so you recycle correctly – inappropriate material will be left behind. Similar to the mainland, there is an allowable capacity per household each week. In wet weather it may not be possible to collect from some areas on the Island due to road conditions.

PLEASE REMEMBER:  Large boxes or cardboard must be flattened, broken up into smaller sizes and tied together – large items cannot be collected and will be left on the verge – not an appealing sight and can block what little drainage we have left. If necessary, please hold over surplus material till the following week.
