THE City of Cockburn is set to trial a three bin system in Hamilton Hill, starting later this year.
From October, 1200 local homes will be receive a 240-litre lime green bin for green waste, keep their yellow recycling bin and receive a 140-litre red bin for general rubbish.
The City, which voted to push forward with the trial at a special council meeting last night, says adding a green waste bin will reduce landfill and help the council reach targets set out in its Waste Management Strategy and by the WA Waste Authority.
The trial is expected to cost $324,000. The City will seek funding from the Waste Authority for the trial but is capable of self-funding.
