Hobart City Council is set to announce the award the tender for the provision of a fortnightly kerbside green waste collection service to its residents next month.
The tender for provision of suitable bins and a kerbside green waste collection closed late last year.
A spokesperson from the council’s Communications Team confirmed that a decision on awarding the contract will be made at the next council meeting on 22 February, which will then be publicly announced.
The council then hopes to roll out the green waste collection service in the first half of 2016.
Hobart City Council was prompted to introduce a kerbside green waste collection after an audit of household general rubbish bins in the area found 60 per cent comprised food and garden waste.
