Bin getting blown over? Council now has bin latches available for purchase to secure your waste or recycling bins.

The latches are a rubber device that connects to the handle of your bin lid and hooks under the edge of the bin. The latch releases when the bin is raised to be emptied into the truck.

Council is making the latches available to the public for $10.85, and you can buy them at the Beaufort Council Office, Beaufort Community Resource Centre or the Avoca Information and Community Centre.

Please get in touch with Council if you are unable to make it to one of these locations. 

This PDF has step-by-step instructions on how to put the bin latch on and this video shows how to attach the latch.
