Your View: Bring back free green waste

RATES go up and the services for the ratepayer go down.

Copper Coast Council has stopped the vouchers for residents to take trailer loads of greens to the depot.

What a load of rubbish!

They simply want to collect more money and don’t care about attracting new residents and looking after the ratepayers who foot all the bills.

Wakefield Regional Council allow six loads per year and they can be tandem-trailer loads too and Murray Bridge Council has just increased its free loads to all residents.

I ask council to reconsider this move and make attempts to support residents, while beautifying the area.

I also ask council to explain how many ratepayers were expected to use the vouchers.

Ask the ratepayers and listen to them before making dumb decisions and don’t use standover methods, or council may find itself accountable.

Both my wife and I have asked council to clean up its allotment on the corner of Gilmore Crescent and Cutter Drive, Wallaroo, because it is a fire hazard and looks terrible, but ignored while they send us all clean-up notices.

Get your act together Copper Coast Council and keep up with other councils.

This decision will only encourage roadside dumping of rubbish if it’s not reversed.

Graham Klingberg, Wallaroo
