Important Note about 80 litre bins in Darebin
The 80 litre waste bin has been the standard bin size since 1996. Some residents may still have a 120 or 140 litre bin (from the former City of Preston), however these are being progressively replaced with 80 litre bins when they are lost, stolen, damaged or fall in the back of the collection truck. Existing 120 and 140 litre bins are now over 20 years old and it is expected that these will all be replaced with the standard 80 litre bin in the coming years. Any residents who feel they need a larger bin can apply for a larger bin permit (fees may apply depending on household size).
