Calculator Tips

Here are some tips to help you make use of this tool:

  1. The 'Current Service' is the existing service with no change. The current recycle bin is available across all options, therefore it is automatically included in your annual rates.
  2. The '2-Service Options' introduces an optional rubbish bin which you can choose a size preference for. Alternatively, you can continue using WDC rubbish bags instead. The rubbish bin cost would be added to your rates.
  3. The '4-Service Options' introduces an optional organics bin (mixed food and garden waste) which you can also choose a size preference for, as well as select your rubbish preferences. The organics bin cost would be added to your rates.
