Ballarat waste experts are upbeat after yesterday's announcement by the Andrews government that all Victorians will get a fourth bin.

The City of Ballarat is one of 40 councils chosen for the scheme.

The purple-lidded bin will be for glass recycling only and will accompany a container deposit scheme.

The bin may replace the current pass-on-glass program which encourages residents to take their glass to designated drop off points around the city.

You'll have to wait though with the bin due next year and container scheme from 2023.
