As rental tenants, Maddy and her housemates will not pay the waste charge directly, this will be paid by their landlord. Maddy and her housemates may request an extra (120 litre) recycling bin to increase their recycling capacity to 360 litres, or a bigger (240 litre) food and garden organics (FOGO) bin, but this will need to be approved by their landlord as their landlord will need to pay the higher waste charge.
The household can arrange two hard waste collections per year. However, if the previous tenants have already used these collections, Maddy and her housemates will have to wait until next year to have their hard waste collected or they can arrange a one-off collection for a fee.
