With summer around the corner, we can start enjoying our outdoors more (if the rain stays away!). While you’re out and about, we’re asking everyone to play your part in making sure litter doesn’t spoil our beautiful Peninsula.
With more people on the Peninsula over the summer period, it inevitably means a higher volume of rubbish. We have placed extra bins in popular places and will be increasing bin collections – three times a day in some locations.
Despite our best efforts, sometimes a public rubbish bin will become full. So, we’re trialling using QR codes for the community to report overflowing bins.
Please look out for these and help us prevent items from escaping our bins, littering our beaches and harming our marine life. It’ll only take you a minute to scan the code and fill out the form.

Quotes attributable to Mayor Councillor Steve Holland:
“Our message is simple for everyone who lives on or is visiting the Peninsula this summer: play your part and bin your litter.
“If the public rubbish bins are full, please report them and take your litter home with you – please don’t leave it next to the bin.
“Our litter prevention officers will be out and about making sure we are all playing our part. We thank you for helping keep our Peninsula clean and beautiful.”
