Manly city council is buying wheelie bins for the homeless to store their belongings. In an unusual plan to protect the possessions of the street dwellers, the council passed a motion to buy six for Manly Community Centre and Fairlight Centre to lend to "rough sleepers".
The bins cost $71 each and are like any 120 litre bin of the kind normally used to collect rubbish. But Manly Council safety officer Leanne Martin said they would be brightly coloured and branded.
"We are going to buy the bins in bright purple or a lime colour so they don't get mistaken for waste," Ms Martin said.
