Vouch­ers ex­tended for hard waste col­lec­tion

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

Hard waste vouch­ers is­sued with last year’s rates no­tices will be ex­tended un­til the end of next month.

The vouch­ers, which usu­ally ex­pire on Au­gust 31, will now ex­pire on Oc­to­ber 31.

Shire staff agreed to ex­tend the vouch­ers as an act of good­will in re­sponse to a re­quest from the Baw Baw Shire Ratepay­ers As­so­ci­a­tion.

No new vouch­ers have been is­sued with this year’s rates no­tices.

All hard waste vouch­ers will be re­dun­dant af­ter the ex­tended ex­piry date.

Coun­cil’s new on de­mand kerb­side hard waste col­lec­tion ser­vice is now op­er­at­ing.

Res­i­dents are el­i­gi­ble for one an­nual kerb­side hard waste col­lec­tion of up to two cu­bic me­ters.

This new ser­vice is be­ing made avail­able to all house­holds.

Coun­cil de­cided to re­in­state a kerb­side hard waste col­lec­tion ser­vice in re­sponse to on­go­ing com­mu­nity feed­back which in­di­cated strong sup­port for the re­turn of the ser­vice.

The ser­vice is be­ing pro­vided at no ad­di­tional cost to ratepay­ers, mean­ing no ad­di­tional waste charge has been in­curred with the re­cently is­sued rates no­tices for the pro­vi­sion of this ser­vice.

Coun­cil be­lieves hav­ing a kerb­side ser­vice avail­able to all house­holds will im­prove gen­eral prop­erty amenity across the shire and re­duce il­le­gal dump­ing.

The new ser­vice will al­low all res­i­dents the op­por­tu­nity to dis­pose of un­wanted items with­out charge.

All book­ings must be made di­rectly to WM Waste Man­age­ment on 1800 969 278 or online at www.hardrub­bish­mel­bourne.com.au

Upon book­ing, res­i­dents will be is­sued with an in­for­ma­tion pack and col­lec­tion date.

No hard waste is to be placed on the kerb­side be­fore a book­ing is made.

Res­i­dents can ex­change their an­nual kerb­side col­lec­tion for free dis­posal of up to two cu­bic me­tres at any coun­cil op­er­ated trans­fer sta­tion.

Coun­cil op­er­ated trans­fer sta­tions are lo­cated at Lard­ner, Trafal­gar, Neerim South and Erica only.

Dis­pos­als can be made as ei­ther one sin­gle dis­posal (up to two cu­bic me­tres) or two sep­a­rate dis­pos­als (up to one cu­bic me­tre each).

Res­i­dents who choose to ex­change their kerb­side col­lec­tion for free hard waste dis­posal at a trans­fer sta­tion must reg­is­ter their ad­dress di­rectly with WM Waste Man­age­ment on 1800 969 278 or online at www.hardrub­bish­mel­bourne.com.au

At the time of dis­posal at a trans­fer sta­tion, res­i­dents will be asked to pro­vide photo iden­ti­fi­ca­tion which re­flects the prop­erty ad­dress the book­ing was made un­der.

With­out photo iden­ti­fi­ca­tion with the listed ad­dress, dis­pos­als will not be ac­cepted
