THE Mansfield Shire Council is reminding all residents that only black rubbish bins will be emptied as of November 30 as part of the new rubbish collection service.
All those who have yet to change their green bins will not receive a rubbish collection service.
Although there is still time to swap the bins over, Mansfield Shire Council waste management officer, Rebecca Kirley, said it was important residents knew that green bins would not be collected past the end of the month.
“The bin roll out is basically completed,” she said.
“There are still some residents out there who haven’t changed the bins over, but we need to make them aware that as of November 30, even if the green bins are put out, they won’t be emptied.”
In order to upgrade to the new black bins, ratepayers need to phone the Mansfield Shire Council to arrange to have their old green bins replaced.
