In Lake Macquarie, 150 km north of Sydney, residents are still struggling with controversial changes made in June 2018

Trash cans filled with worms, rats, and trash scattered across the street could be the reality with municipal regions proposing changes to waste collection.

A growing number of councils believe that reducing weekly bin collections to biweekly could be the solution to save money and reduce the rotting of waste at landfills.

In Lake Macquarie, 150 km north of Sydney, residents are still struggling with controversial changes made in June 2018.

Households had to adapt to the collection of their waste containers every fourteen days, with the only bin that was collected weekly being the waste bins.

In Melbourne, there are currently three suburban and suburban suburbs that collect garbage every two weeks, with Glen Eira in the southeast of the city as the next.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, however, put down the biweekly waste collections as & # 39; a nonsense idea & # 39 ;.

According to The age, Glen Eira Council recently consulted residents on the biweekly collection and opted instead for a weekly collection of green bins containing only garden and food waste.

Meanwhile, residents in Sydney & # 39; s Northern Beaches are furious that their bins are being reduced.

& # 39; Is the Northern Beaches Council reducing the size of our bins? & # 39; a user posted on the Northern Beaches Council Facebook page.

& # 39; Is this because they want to ask more for tariff payers to get extra storage locations? & # 39;

& # 39; Will Northern Beaches Council lower their rates because they reduce service? & # 39;

Other Facebook users were also angry about the size reduction, where one person wrote: & # 39; The new 80L containers are too small !! & # 39;

& # 39; What is cleverly hidden is the fact that the red box that we fill as a family every week is now reduced by a third! & # 39; another complained.

& # 39; Great improvement in service, you can do nothing, change anything, except reduce your service by reducing the capacity of the main trash by 33 percent! & # 39;

A spokesperson for Northern Beaches Council told Daily Mail Australia that the bins are smaller because a new waste service has been introduced.

In 2016, Waringah, Manly and Pittwater Council merged into Northern Beaches Council.

& # 39; A majority of the people in the three areas still had the smaller bins & # 39 ;, said the spokesperson.

Manly and Pittwater already had the smaller 80L containers. That is why some residents thought their bins had been reduced.

Residents are concerned that longer waiting times between waste collection and smaller container dimensions can cause more mess on the streets and feud between neighbors.

& # 39; We are a family of four who are diligent about recycling and also have a compost and worm farm & # 39 ;, a woman wrote on Facebook.

& # 39; But we are full of waste, because our trash can has been traded in for the new red lids. & # 39;

& # 39; People are going to throw their waste in public storage locations or near unit bins. & # 39;
