City de­liv­ers new rub­bish ser­vices

Eastern Reporter - - News -

CITY of Bayswa­ter res­i­dents now have ac­cess to a green waste bulk bin and ex­panded white goods col­lec­tion ser­vice.

There will also be more re­cy­cling sta­tions for bat­ter­ies and flu­o­res­cent bulbs at shop­ping cen­tres, li­braries, The Rise in May­lands and Bayswa­ter Waves.

The ser­vices will be avail­able from Au­gust.

Mayor Dan Bull said the ser­vices would help re­duce waste go­ing into land­fill.

“A ded­i­cated green waste bin means there’s less chance of qual­ity gar­den mat­ter like leaves, lawn clip­pings and branches end­ing up in land­fill,” he said.

“In­stead, the waste col­lected in these bins will be mulched and reused.

“A mat­tress and white­goods col­lec­tion is some­thing res­i­dents have been ask­ing for and we're pleased to of­fer this on-call ser­vice free of charge.”

Cr Bull said res­i­dents could re­quest two mat­tress and white­goods col­lec­tions from their home per year.
