CAMPASPE Shire is pleased with the community's response to its new selection of waste services.
Resident will be able to choose from a broad range of waste, recycling and garden organic bin options when new a kerbside waste collection starts from July 1.
Environment and waste spokesman Greg Toll said resident were asked to choose between the Standard Service or Pick and Mix list, and return their forms to council.
"I’m thrilled at both the response I've had personally from people, who are happy to have a say in the services they get and also the return rate on the paperwork," he said.
"Thousands of forms have been returned and there is still more than a week until the closing date of Friday, 28 February."
To help ratepayers make their choices, the waste, recycle and garden organics bins can be viewed and downloaded at www.campaspe.vic.gov.au/bins
