The Northern Territory Government has announced they will be rolling out 90 green waste skip bins across Darwin suburbs that were hardest hit by Cyclone Marcus.
The move is a joint effort between the City of Darwin and the NT Government to remove accumulated green waste and reduce traffic into Shoal Bay.

NT Treasurer Nicole Manison said the NT Government will fund the bin to assist
“Skip bins are being placed on verges and roadsides to assist residents with the disposal of green waste this weekend,” she said.
“The green waste skip bins will be removed Monday morning, so we urge residents to dispose of their green waste this weekend.”
NT Lord Mayor Kon Vatskalis said Territorians should only fill the bins to the top line of the skip.
“Contractors will be collecting the bins once full and returning them if necessary on Saturday. If you see a full bin call the number on the side of the bin,” he said.
