Junee Shire Council will extend the kerbside collection services for the sake of seven residents on either side of the town's divide.
Some of the homes exist along the western Old Junee edge of the town, but the majority of affected houses border Waterworks Road towards Junee Reefs.
Despite lacking the collection services for the past several years, the households had continued to pay full rates. Instead of a weekly collection, a voucher for 12 free tip entries was delivered to start each financial year.
Council's director of engineering services, Cole Davis, said the extension was to bring the outlying areas into line with the rest of the town's services.
"When I looked at the system, it didn't look quite right," Mr Davis said.
"People who were entitled to it were unable to get it, so this will tidy the system."
As the town continues to grow, the additional service areas will provide for areas that are not yet occupied, including the rapidly expanding residential zone west of John Potts Estate.
Shire councillor Pam Halliburton is one of the residents who will be affected by the change.
"On my street, about four already had the [kerbside] system, it was just the last five of us that are now going to have the service," she said.
In conjunction with the decision to extend kerbside scavenging areas, councillors also voted to allow properties larger than 40 hectares to forgo green waste collection entirely.
Cr Halliburton was excused from voting on June 25 due to her conflicting non-pecuniary interest.
But outside the council chambers, she indicated her disapproval for the new green waste system.
"I have more than 40 hectares so I don't have to have an environmental bin," she said.
"Some of my neighbours have less than that, but they also have chooks or composts that they throw their green waste into.
"I think people with 10 hectares should be given the option not to have a green waste service, otherwise it's unfair for people who are composting on their own land."
Under the new system, households with a land size smaller than 40 hectares will be required to purchase a green waste bin, regardless of their intention of use.
"They have to pay $60-something every year for it, even when they're not using it," Cr Halliburton said.
