⚖️BIN WEIGHT LIMITS⚖️

Councils Waste Management Guidelines has a kerbside bin weight limit of 75 kg in line with many other Councils across the State 🗑️

While Wardles garbage trucks have a maximum capability of lifting 125kg of weight, there are various factors in the 75kg limit including:

⚠️ The bin is at risk of coming loose from the mechanical arm and falling into the collection truck when it exceeds 75kg

💪 Protection of hydraulic system of the collection vehicles as the gravitational pull and the raising motion increases the downward force on the arm

🏋️ The bin manufacturer already states 140 litre bins should not exceed 67 kg in overall weight and 240 litre bins should not exceed 109 kg in overall weight (including the weight of the bin)

💔 Heavier weights regularly placing pressure on the plastic bins will reduce the lifespan of the bin

The truck has the technology that sounds an alert when the bins are too heavy and the driver will leave a note advising the resident or business of this 📝

Overfilling your bin will require you to remove some of the waste and take it to the Resource Recovery Centre 🚗

Please be aware that only in exceptional circumstances would a residential kerbside collection bin exceed 75kg if used for domestic purposes. Only 3 out of 1200 collections were above 125kg yesterday 🙂

✂️CUT THE STRAPS✂️

With disposable face masks being more regularly used in South Australia during the current COVID-19 restrictions, it is important to know how to properly dispose of them 😷

While many may know they belong in the red bin as they are not recyclable, many dont realise you should also cut the ear loops with scissors before putting in the rubbish bin to prevent entangling wildlife 🐦

Prefer a more environmentally-friendly option? You can buy or create your own reusable cloth mask, with many options available at local stores and online—just dont forget to wash them! 🧼

🤕THE COST OF VANDALISM🤕

During the 2020/21 financial year, the Copper Coast suffered in excess of $100,000 of damage and claims submissions due to selfish acts of vandalism including theft, arson and destruction of our community property 😠

The Local Government Association (LGA) provide Councils with membership to a mutual scheme which is provided to assist with insurance claims, but it is the excess and hidden costs related to internal and external resources which add up 💰

Instances like cleanup of graffiti, replacement of stolen signs, attendance of emergency services and the investigation and reporting to the LGA mutual scheme for each occurrence impacts on our community more than simply paying excess 🔀

Sadly, vandalism is something that Council is having to budget for each financial year 📈

Vandalism and damage to property impacts our residents enjoying our facilities, our children being able to play happily in our parks and recreation areas, and visitors to our community 😮

Vandalism isn’t an accident, it is a deliberate act made by a minority within our community 😔 

As a community, we need to remain vigilante and report any suspicious behavior as soon as possible to police on 131 444 🕵️

We need to do this not only to minimise the impact of costs that flow on to our ratepayers, but to let the perpetrators know that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated in our community! 🙅
