Council's Waste Collection Services

by Willoughby Admin, about 8 years ago

Council is thinking about what garbage and recycling services you may need and is interested in what you think. We are committed to looking after our environment by making sure :

  • The amount of garbage we send to the landfill continues to reduce
  • Harm to the environment is avoided
  • We treat waste as a resource by avoiding making it wherever possible and reusing, recovering and recycling as much as possible.

With these factors in mind please tell us what else Council can do to meet your needs when it comes to garbage and recycling services?

    Please let us know what Council can do to meet your needs when it comes to garbage and recycling. We would love to hear any suggestions or ideas you may have. There is also a quick survey on this subject which can be completed at http://haveyoursaywilloughby.com.au/onlinecommunitypanel?module=survey&survey_tool_id=25#tool For further info about Council's waste and recycling services visit http://www.willoughby.nsw.gov.au/your-neighbourhood/waste---recycling/ Looking forward to hearing your feedback!

    I've answered the survey and have left some detailed comments there about kitchen waste and recycling the contents of the red lid bin. But I'd also like to point out that avoiding waste is best. I don't know if council can/is interested in plugging an online community of people giving away items rather than putting them in the bins, but if so, here it is http://groups.freecycle.org/WilloughbyFreecycle/posts/all This is a very active group of local people who advertise any number of items (books to TVs to clothes and on it goes) that they no longer need and that other members can get for free. I'm sure much of this would end up in the red lib bin if it weren't for freecycle.

      Thanks for that link - I agree -could be posted somewhere in local newspaper, Rates notices, or other council publication.

    Do we have to wait for state legislation and agreement from beverage makers in relation to beverage containers - SO many of them in our local park. I pick them up because i can't stand it after a sporting match but would much rather the scouts could pick them up and get 10c back from council?

    • One way of reducing landfill and creating the correct impression to residents, visitors and other Councils, is for Willoughby City Council to install yellow lid recycling bins in all parkland and recreation areas, as other Councils already do.
