Your say on bulky

rubbish removal

Northern Beaches Council

is turning to ratepayers to

help solve the problem of

inconsistencies in ‘bulky

goods’ collection it inherited

after amalgamation last May.

It’s understood community

frustration had highlighted

the inconsistent service

delivery currently in place.

Currently there is an on-call

(twice yearly) system operating

in the former Manly and

Pittwater areas and a scheduled

twice-yearly service in

the former Warringah area.

Council General Manager

Environment & Infrastructure

Ben Taylor said it was clear

from feedback that the community

wanted the service

made consistent. “So now we

are moving to formally seek

community input into the

review which will consider the

preferences of the community

and the environmental,

financial and service delivery

impacts of any proposed

changes,” he said. “Issues

include the visual impact of

the large volumes of waste we

sometimes see with scheduled

services, convenience of

use and ability to recycle and

re-use, as well as the environmental

and safety impacts

of illegal dumping, nuisance

rummaging and pedestrian

access.” Feedback at yoursay.
