In collaboration with Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner, we’re spearheading initiatives to address landfill issues and alleviate costs for Brisbane ratepayers. We are doing everything we can to reduce the cost-of-living, and a significant aspect of our waste strategy offers Brisbane residents a $200 rebate, starting January 1, for installing InSinkErators and waste dehydrators, countering the financial impact of the Queensland State Government’s escalating “bin tax.”
The Schrinner Council’s detailed waste strategy incorporates digitizing waste vouchers, rebates, introducing 1500 new recycling bins in parks, and launching a food waste recycling service.
Without intervention, every Brisbane household faces the financial burden of the state’s bin tax. Our overarching strategy empowers residents to recycle effectively, reduce landfill-bound waste, and mitigate against extra costs.
This strategy is currently in its draft stage, and your input is invaluable. I urge all residents to actively engage, stay informed through my social media channels, and play a role in advancing Brisbane as a model for sustainable living.
Did you know that we have reduced the cost of a green bin to $45 annually, with the establishment fee waived? To get your green bin click here or call Council on 3403 8888.
