We want to help our residents get their waste sorted! Council provides educational resources to help residents understand how to correctly use their kerbside green, recycling and garbage bins.
However, incidents that have the potential to cause harm or damage can occur onboard our waste collection vehicles, which is why we actively monitor service compliance through live onboard recording and regular auditing.
Footage captured is held in accordance with our Collection and Use of GPS Data from Council Vehicles Policy and is used to detect service breaches including overweight bins or bins that contain hazardous or unacceptable materials.
Onboard recording is also useful to help identify damaged or non-presentation of bins, and improves driver and pedestrian safety.
