Beaut bins, scenic shots

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western opinion -

PHO­TO­GRAPHS of Cottes­loe could dec­o­rate bins along the beach and the main path to the fore­shore af­ter coun­cil­lors de­cided to in­ves­ti­gate the pro­posal at their meet­ing in April.

“You go to other places and see won­der­ful pic­tures of the places there, like Mar­garet River with its beau­ti­ful scenic pic­tures of their bay on their bins,” Save Our Sub­urb vice-pres­i­dent Pa­tri­cia Carmichael said.

As part of a re­newed five-year con­tract with bin main­te­nance com­pany Nat­sales, coun­cil­lors agreed the com­pany could be al­lowed to in­crease the num­ber of bins from 41 that it has pro­vided near the beach and across the Town since 2001.

The bins have square, metal en­clo­sures with ad­ver­tis­ing on three sides and a side for lit­ter and coun­cil com­mu­nity cam­paigns.

Staff said the the coun­cil would ben­e­fit from not hav­ing to pay for the up­keep of up to 40 new en­clo­sures cost­ing $95,000.
