Waste ser­vice picks up

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - FRONT PAGE -

AN ‘on de­mand’ pick-up ser­vice for white goods, mat­tresses, bed bases and lounge suites will start in Bel­mont to help clear away large and of­ten un­sightly un­wanted junk.

It’s the one ob­vi­ous change that will be in­tro­duced by the City of Bel­mont’s new rub­bish col­lec­tor, Suez Aus­tralia, which started a five-year refuse col­lec­tion con­tract on Novem­ber 1.

Bel­mont chief ex­ec­u­tive John Christie said bin col­lec­tion days across the city would re­main the same but there would be a change to where all the waste goes af­ter it has been col­lected.

“There are no plans to change bin ser­vic­ing days for the ma­jor­ity of res­i­dents and res­i­dents’ al­lo­ca­tion of blue and green bulk bins will con­tinue,” he said.

“Green bulk bins will still be avail­able for green waste dis­posal.

“Waste from res­i­den­tial, com­mer­cial and pub­lic lit­ter bins will be trans­ported for dis­posal at Red­hill Waste Man­age­ment Fa­cil­ity, as will green bulk waste for mulching, while re­cy­clables and bulk refuse will be taken to Suez’s Bi­bra Lake Re­source Re­cov­ery Park.”

Bulk rub­bish col­lec­tions will oc­cur in the fourth week of ev­ery month, with res­i­dents asked to call or ar­range on­line for un­wanted goods to be col­lected.

Suez is re­spon­si­ble for waste col­lec­tion in many lo­cal govern­ment ar­eas.
