Deal over lost waste

Melville Times - - News -

A DEAL has been struck be­tween the City of Cockburn and South­ern Met­ro­pol­i­tan Re­gional Coun­cil over com­pen­sa­tion for lost green waste.

The City is less than 12 months into a four-year plan to roll out green waste bins to 42,000 res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties in Cockburn.

The SMRC was against the roll-out as it would di­vert green waste away from its Can­ning Vale Re­gional Resource Re­cov­ery Cen­tre and po­ten­tially lead to a $7 mil­lion bud­get deficit.

But City and SMRC rep­re­sen­ta­tives man­aged to ne­go­ti­ate a deal, which was signed off by Cockburn coun­cil­lors in Fe­bru­ary. Un­der the deal, the City will pay $77.70 to the SMRC for each tonne of green waste the lo­cal coun­cil pro­cesses at its Waste Re­cov­ery Park in Hen­der­son un­til the end of June.
