COUNCIL FIRED UP

Green waste crackdown looms after rubbish combusts

COPPER Coast Council is cracking down on people who throw green waste in with their general refuse, after a pile of rubbish spontaneously combusted at the Copper Coast Resource Recovery Centre.

The quick thinking of a centre employee prevented serious damage at the Wallaroo site on Tuesday, May 3.

Graham Blott was moving kerbside waste in a front-end loader when it started smouldering due to green waste contamination.

    In regards to the front page article last week about green waste in copper coast council bins I ask what does the council expect? The council wants us to have yard pride and keep our gardens tidy but then expects us now to fork out $33 for a ute load of green waste. The council fails to provide a green waste bin or a local green waste drop off center (like other councils) so what do I do with my small amount of lawn clippings or leaves raked from my drive? Drive to Wallaroo to pay through the nose for something that should be free? If your serious about rubbish, recycling and keeping the copper coast the “lifestyle location of choice” make Recycling & greenwaste FREE to discourage illegal dumping and stop using our rates to pay wages for clean up our back roads.
