Rubbish, recycling hot topics
Some may consider it a rubbish subject, but waste and recycling remain a hot topic and it is something in which the City of Kwinana is heavily invested.
After a rigorous tender process, the City has changed its waste and recycling service provider to SUEZ, one of the most highly experienced companies specialising in global waste and recycling.
The changes will have a “minimal impact” on residents but a greater effect on the environment, according to Mayor Carol Adams.
“Collection days will remain the same and there will be no increase to the cost of providing the waste service to the community,” she said.
“The new contract will see the introduction of a new fleet with technological enhancements aimed at improving the City’s waste recovery rates and service efficiencies. Transport-related carbon emissions will also reduce due to shorter distances to transport recyclable materials.”
Residents were encouraged to take soft plastics to recycling points at supermarkets while continuing to separate their waste and recycling between household green and yellowlidded bins.
