Kerbside green waste collection coming to Hobart

Veolia Australia and New Zealand

Friday, 22 April, 2016

The City of Hobart has awarded utility company Veolia a contract for a new fortnightly kerbside green waste collection service. Under the contract, Veolia will collect around 12,000 green waste bins from properties in the Hobart municipal area every fortnight.

From early May, the service will be available to most residential homes in Hobart that are situated on blocks greater than 400 m2. The City will make services available for other residents dependent on tenancy and locations, while also providing the ability for residents who don’t qualify for services to opt in if they wish.

The service forms part of the council’s strategy to eliminate waste disposed to landfill by 2030.
