Mackenzie with her partner, two children and a compost bin

As a ratepayer, Mackenzie will pay the waste charge based on the size of each of their bins.

As her family does not create much waste, Mackenzie may choose to have smaller garbage and recycling bins and would pay a reduced waste charge. Mackenzie could use the food and garden organics (FOGO) bin for food waste that may not go in her home compost bin, such as meat, seafood, dairy and processed foods.
