Rubbish and Recycling

Council is committed to developing its waste minimisation initiatives. As part of this we are asking our community whether they want Council to introduce a kerbside recycling service; a kerbside rubbish and recycling service; or leave things as they are now (no Council operated service).

Over the next few weeks all urban residential properties will receive a postcard which gives you three options to choose from – recycling only; rubbish and recycling; or the status quo.

Please fill this in and return it to us by 2 November 2018.
