Our current waste and recycling collection service expires on 1 July 2019.

With the current contract nearing completion there is an opportunity to review service requirements to ensure they adequately provide for future needs throughout the new seven-year contract period.

Council will be investigating ways to enhance the current service. Some of the options that will be examined include:

  • provision and maintenance of bins to all residents (i.e. eliminating bins that are owned and maintained by residents)
  • streamlining price points for bin sizes
  • improving quality of bins
  • improving portability of bins (i.e. WHS and manual handling)
  • provide incentives for increased recycling.

Council’s waste and recycling management objectives are:

  • cost effective collection and disposal methods
  • reduced waste taken to landfill sites through increased recycling and reuse of collected materials
  • environmentally responsible waste transportation, reprocessing and handling.
