Abbotsford residents are about to get a brand new bin. 

The new bins will have purple lids and will be used for glass. 

Yarra City Council will start the one-year trial with 1300 households – taking their total wheelie bin tally to four (glass, general recycling, organic and green waste).

It’s designed to cut down the amount of glass being thrown into landfill or shattering and contaminating other recyclables.
