Don’t rub­bish Mul­wala

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page - BY ROBERT MUIR

The worst over­flow of garbage was at Pur­tle Park, de­spite three skips be­ing left at the drive in sec­tion.

Re­ports of abuse to the sys­tem with some peo­ple dump­ing rub­bish from their own homes were made to Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil.

“We have au­tho­rized Clean­away to pick up the rub­bish ev­ery day and we are look­ing at open­ing the tip more of­ten,” coun­cil’s Gen­eral Man­ager Adrian But­ler told the Yar­ra­wonga Chron­i­cle.

“It’s some­thing we will have to ad­dress in fu­ture, re­gard­less of whether there has been abuse to the sys­tem or not. We must have a clean sit­u­a­tion in that re­gard.”

Mul­wala Progress As­so­ci­a­tion Pres­i­dent Robert Pur­tle OAM said it was a shame the skips had to be placed in the one spot. “But where else could they go?” he asked.

“There’s been a par­tic­u­larly big use of that area with fish­ing, swim­ming and ski­ing. It’s also a shame there’s been some abuse of the skips. I’ve also heard that rub­bish has been dumped in a skip at Lons­dale Re­serve.

“I think for next Christ­mas coun­cil should con­sider let­ting house­holds use all three colour bins each week for col­lec­tion, not just green and red one week, and green and yel­low the next week.”

Rub­bish from fore­shore ar­eas in Mul­wala is now be­ing col­lected daily by Clean­away fol­low­ing an over­flow of rub­bish over the par­tic­u­larly busy Christ­mas/New Year pe­riod.
