Mul­ti­ple wheelie bin cost relief

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT BUDGET -

SMALL busi­nesses with mul­ti­ple wheelie bins will en­joy lower costs for waste col­lec­tion – a first-time re­duc­tion in fees.

Col­lec­tion of each 240-litre bin has been re­duced by $96, bring­ing it closer in line with res­i­den­tial fees. The move to re­duce costs was made pos­si­ble by stream­lin­ing the waste col­lec­tion con­tract.

JJ Richards took over the con­tract on June 30, ser­vic­ing the en­tire South Bur­nett and of­fer­ing a lower over­all cost be­cause of the higher vol­ume.

Mayor Wayne Kratz­mann said the coun­cil had worked tire­lessly to cal­cu­late how much the com­mer­cial charge could be re­duced with­out im­pact­ing res­i­den­tial fees.

“I am thrilled, it may not be a lot, but ev­ery bit counts,” Cr Kratz­mann said.
