Tackle your green waste and you could win GC SUNS tickets

6 July 2015

Sign up for a City of Gold Coast green waste bin before 17 July 2015 and you could be off to see the Gold Coast SUNS in action at Metricon Stadium.

Mayor Tom Tate said the City had teamed up with the GC SUNS to offer residents an incentive to recycle their green waste.

“There are already lots of benefits from using a green waste bin, but if you sign up now, you could win a double pass for the GC SUNS game against the West Coast Eagles on Saturday 1 August,” he said.

“On top of that, one lucky winner will get a double pass to the Inner Sanctum Cage Experience, giving them exclusive access to watch the players prepare ahead of the game.

“Every new green waste bin registration from now to 17 July 2015 goes in the draw to win.”

Mayor Tate said green bins were a cost-effective way to keep gardens and outdoor areas tidy.

“Our green waste bins are available to property owners and tenants from as little as $1 per week and the fortnightly kerbside collection covers most of the Gold Coast,” he said.

“Once collected, the contents are recycled by our contractors into compost and green electricity, diverting green garden waste from landfill and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.”

Green bins take garden prunings, grass clippings, shrubs, weeds and flowers, leaves and loose bark, as well as palm fronds and small branches cut to fit into the bin.

Around 2000 tonnes of garden waste have been diverted from City landfills over the last 12 months, contributing to the City’s goals set out in the draft Solid Waste Strategy 2024.
