Watch the waste

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

AS Swan View and Midvale res­i­dents start putting their junk on to the kerb for the an­nual bulk rub­bish col­lec­tion, the Shire of Mun­dar­ing is warn­ing res­i­dents that staff will be watch­ing and may is­sue fines for waste set out in­cor­rectly.

In­fra­struc­ture ser­vices di­rec­tor Shane Purdy said the max­i­mum amount of bulk waste that could be placed on a verge was two cu­bic me­tres.

“In ad­di­tion, the Shire ad­vises that res­i­dents can­not place items out any ear­lier than two weeks prior to their col­lec­tion week or al­low items to ob­struct the foot­path or spill out on to the road,” he said.

“These guide­lines are in place to not only en­sure ease of ac­cess for the bulk verge col­lec­tion ve­hi­cles but to en­sure the safety of res­i­dents and aes­thetic of Shire streets are up­held through­out the col­lec­tion pe­riod.

“Shire staff will be mon­i­tor­ing verges and fines may ap­ply for waste not set out cor­rectly.”

The bulk verge col­lec­tion pe­riod will span six weeks this year, with col­lec­tions sched­uled for all sub­urbs this month, September and Oc­to­ber.
