Help with hu­man waste from ve­hi­cles

North Coast Weekender - - News -

A MERRIWA res­i­dent has called on the City of Wanneroo to pro­vide a refuse drop so peo­ple can empty toi­lets in car­a­vans and four-wheel-drive ve­hi­cles.

Mak­ing the re­quest at the coun­cil’s April 4 meet­ing, Lewis Flood said there were cur­rently only pri­vate fa­cil­i­ties within the City. His ques­tion was taken on no­tice and act­ing as­sets di­rec­tor Grant Chet­tle­burgh pro­vided a re­sponse in the min­utes.

“The City does not cur­rently pro­vide dis­posal sites for hu­man ef­flu­ent from car­a­vans and re­cre­ational ve­hi­cles,” Mr Chet­tle­burgh said.

“Fa­cil­i­ties are avail­able in caravan parks across Perth in­clud­ing the Kingsway Tourist Park lo­cated in Made­ley that charge a fee for this ser­vice.

“The City’s waste ser­vices team is re­spon­si­ble for the col­lec­tion of do­mes­tic waste from res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties, street and park bins, and an­nual bulk junk and greens col­lec­tions.”

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City would in­ves­ti­gate the suggestion to see if there was any­thing it could do.
