There have been calls in the past for recycling services to go from fortnightly to weekly but instead the City will look at options for residents to request a larger 360L yellow lid recycling bin later this year.
This would provide a 50 per cent increase in fortnightly recycling capacity, Mayor Carol Adams said.
�The City will maintain the two- bin system (one green 240 litre bin and one yellow 240 litre bin) until the end of the current waste collection contract in September 2015,� Cr Adam said.
�The intention at this stage is that residents who do not wish to have a bigger recycling bin will be able to keep their old one.
�Those residents who want a bigger recycling bin would then pay a little bit more for their waste charge each year.�
The City presently offers four green waste and two hard waste collections each year in addition to recycling and household waste services.
In February, the City of Rockingham approved a new waste collection strategy with the option for its residents to get a bigger bin for recyclables.
Rockingham residents can also choose a smaller 120L red-lidded waste bin and a 240L green-lidded waste.
