Waste service in the spotlight
GIDGEGANNUP residents are hoping to have a say on the future of their waste services at a City of Swan meeting later this month.
Residents have never paid a refuse levy.
But that could change if a proposal to replace weekly passes to Red Hill Waste Management Facility with weekly collections goes ahead.
Private contractor Richard Powell currently removes about 30 per cent of waste from Gidgegannup homes, says Gidgegannup Progress Association chairwoman Sally Block.
The City of Swan confirmed the waste proposal would be on the agenda at a council meeting on February 28.
Gidgegannup waste service has been an anomaly for a number of years and council chief executive Mike Foley said it was appropriate for council to consider the matter.
