3 Bins and a Basket


Following the introduction of a 3 Bins and a Basket kerbside service, the City of Burnside is now diverting around 60 per cent of household waste from landfill. We can still improve on our performance by learning more about what goes in which bin. Watch our 3 Bins and a Basket and Composting Truth videos below.
