KERB­SIDE COL­LEC­TION

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

IT MAY be of in­ter­est to coun­cil to know that on the Cen­tral Coast, un­der the pre­vi­ous Gos­ford Coun­cil and con­tin­ued un­der the amal­ga­ma­tion with Wy­ong Coun­cil, there is a per­fectly man­aged kerb side col­lec­tion scheme.

All that is re­quired is a phone call to book the col­lec­tion, and then the fol­low­ing ap­plies:

“Place items out the day be­fore your col­lec­tion day. Plac­ing your items out as late as pos­si­ble lim­its the chance of your pile be­ing added to. Each house­hold is en­ti­tled to have up to 12m3 col­lected each year through a max­i­mum of six free house­hold or veg­e­ta­tion col­lec­tions.”

I have used this ser­vice a num­ber of times in re­cent years and can to­tally rec­om­mend it. Why can’t we have a sim­i­lar sys­tem here? Peter Kitch­ing
