Due to an ongoing supplier manufacturing issue our usual supplier has been unable to meet demand for mobile garbage bins (MGB’s) more commonly known as wheelie bins. ICC has engaged an alternate supplier using emergency provisions to assist in supplying 240 litre MGB’s however, this alternate supplier is bearing the weight of a nation wide shortfall and deliveries are taking much longer than usual to arrive.
In effect ICC is unable to secure an ongoing reliable supply of MGB’s for the foreseeable future and as such there may be delays in fulfilling any bin repairs or waste service commencements. When deliveries are received ICC is committing additional resources to assist in clearing the backlog as quickly as possible. Further updates will be provided as soon as supplier surety can be attained.
With over 100,000 household waste collection services scheduled each week, it is important that we work together to ensure the services run as smoothly as possible.

Bin presentation tips:
The Assisted Household Waste Removal (Infirm) Service can be applied for by residents who are unable to physically move their bins to and from the kerbside, due to a disability or impairment, and have no able bodied person to assist them.
The waste collection driver will then wheel the bins out for servicing and return them back to the agreed location on the residents property. The assisted service is provided at no additional cost to the normal service charge, on the condition that the applicant provides council with a completed Assisted Household Waste Removal (Infirm) Service application. This application must be signed and dated by the residents general practitioner.
