Do you have trouble with your bins tipping over in strong winds?

Kiama Council now has a solution available.

Residents of our municipality can purchase a bin locking device that will prevent waste from spilling out of your bins if they fall over.  

The locks self-release and allow the lid to open when picked up by the side arm collection truck.

The purchase price includes installation by a trained staff member.
