Getting Council back to the basics and excelling in them is a real priority.
I have already announced that should I be elected Mayor Saturday 19 March Council will introduce a program of kerbside hard rubbish collection for the first time to the region.
Tips will remain free for residential usage. A number of tips will in fact have their hours of operation reviewed and extended where required.
Following on from this Council will continue to enhance waste management services to the region by further investigating and planning for the rollout of green waste bins to residential areas within two years.
A green waste program would most likely take a similar form to services already offered in other South East Councils.
Green waste bins are good for our environment and they certainly could be a very practical help to many residents.
