- 140L general waste bin with blue lid – $62

- 240L green organics bin with green lid – $67
bins are usually in stock at each depot location. Credit card and EFTPOS available (50% discount on bin price for City of Victor Harbor residents).
On the MAINLAND bins belong to the property owner and therefore initial purchase, replacement and repair is the responsibility of the property owner.
Kangaroo Island residents completing a new house build can make application to KI Council for residential bins (applicable to the collection service).
In most cases bins can be repaired
- lids (all sizes) – $16
- axles – $11
- Wheels – $9 each
- Pins and Bushes – FREE
LID CLOSURES – SPECIAL PRICE
Bin lids are blown open in the wind and waste does escape into the environment. Ingenious rubber bin LID closures are available from FRWA and most Councils
these closures will secure the bin lid in windy conditions, but allows lid to open when bin is lifted for emptying.
MARK your bins with the property address to reduce the chance of loss.
