Be A Good Sort! Provide Coloured Internal Bins

Good sort logos Page 2

Bass Coast’s three bin system can sometimes be confusing, particularly for visitors who may use a different kerbside system at their usual place of residence. We encourage the community, especially accommodation providers, to make it easier for everyone to sort waste appropriately by providing different internal bins in colours that match your kerbside bin colours.

Using internal bins in colours that match your kerbside bins makes it easy to sort waste appropriately at the point of disposal. There are many different styles of coloured internal bins available from a variety of manufacturers, so choose the style that’s right for your home. Try typing "indoor coloured bins" into your web browser for some inspiration!

Displaying information near bins explaining on can go in each bin also helps improve waste sorting behaviours. Educational material such as posters and stickers are available for download or can be collected from our Customer Services and Visitor Information Centres.
