Household bin surveys to guide Council’s future services


Snowy Monaro Regional Council will soon conduct household bin surveys across the region with the data obtained to guide the Council’s future waste education programs and collection services.

Household waste, recycling and organic bins will be surveyed from Monday 12 November to Friday 23 November.

The survey will identify if households are correctly discarding materials into the appropriate bin, and how full the bins are when presented for collection.

Households across the region will be randomly selected with bin contents weighed by an independent contractor. Once the survey is complete, all collected materials will be disposed in the normal manner at Council’s facilities.

Surveys will occur on the same day as the normal kerbside collection service with the contractor removing and bagging the contents.

All information obtained during the survey will be treated as confidential and no individual property or personal information will be used in the results of the survey.

For any enquiries, please contact Council’s Resource and Waste Department on 1300 345 345 or email
