NEW wheelie bins have been distributed to Gwydir shire residents, but the new system won’t begin until next week.
Residents have received red-, yellow- and green-lidded bins, with red to be used for household rubbish, yellow for recycling and green for green waste.
The old bins will be removed from this week, beginning with the Warialda recycle bins tomorrow.
Recycled bins will be collected at Croppa Creek and North Star on Thursday and they’ll go from Gravesend and Warialda Rail residents on Friday.
The Warialda residential garbage bins will be removed on September 23, with commercial bins to be collected on September 26, along with household bins at Gravesend, Warialda Rail, North Star and Croppa Creek.
Both bins will be collected on September 24 at Bingara.
The old bins will be recycled and made into new bins.
