Council region ‘in harmony’ with the cost of a third bin

An expanded waste collection and processing service across the Dubbo Regional Council LGA has been approved, including a new three bin service (organics, dry recycling and mixed waste) for urban areas of Dubbo, Wellington, Geurie, Brocklehurst and Wongarbon, and a two bin service (mixed waste and dry recycling) for villages, rural, urban fringe areas and units in Dubbo and Wellington.

Dubbo Regional Council describes pricing as “being harmonised across the Local Government Area”. The two bin service is $308 (up from the current Dubbo rate of $294.96 and down from Wellington’s current single bin service fee of $347). The three bin service is $378. Eligible pensioners will receive a $50 rebate on the three bin service.
