Procedures in place to ensure rubbish binned correctly
CORRECT procedure will be reinforced among Cleanaway staff to ensure a first-class waste and recycling service for Fraser Coast residents.
In response to residents' claims that waste and recycling bins were being tipped into the same truck, the Fraser Coast's rubbish contractor released a statement on Thursday saying it was committed to working in partnership with the council.
"Cleanaway takes issues raised by the public seriously regarding recycling and general waste being collected by the one vehicle and have procedures to ensure residents' bins are collected correctly which are reinforced with our workforce on an ongoing basis," a spokesman said.
"Each week, separate recycling and general waste vehicles collect bins from 92,000 residents in the Fraser Coast Region, with around 125 tonnes of recycling processed at the state-of-the-art Fraser Coast Materials Recovery Facility."
The spokesman said Granville pensioner Max Deacon had been contacted in regard to his complaint.
