Waste ser­vice in the spot­light

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
