Review of Bulky Goods Collection

Northern Beaches Council is inviting community input into a review of its bulky goods collection services.

Northern Beaches Council General Manager Environment & Infrastructure Ben Taylor said the community has highlighted the inconsistent service delivery currently in place.

“We have an on-call system for bulky goods collection operating for residents of the former Manly and Pittwater, where residents can call and arrange a pick up twice yearly when needed, and a scheduled twice-yearly service operating for residents of the former Warringah.

“The community has identified this as a priority to make the service consistent, so now we are moving to formally seek community input into the review.

“Issues include the visual impact of the large volumes of waste we sometimes see with scheduled services, convenience of use and ability to recycle and re-use, as well as the environmental and safety impacts of illegal dumping, nuisance rummaging and pedestrian access,” Mr Taylor said.

Residents can have their say at http://yoursay.northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au until 18 June or by attending one of the drop-in sessions:
•    Fri 26 May 11.30am-2.30pm, Mona Vale Memorial Hall
•    Sat 27 May 12-3pm, Taste of Manly, Manly
•    Sun 28 May 9am-12pm, Frenchs Forest Organic Market
•    Mon 29 May 9am-12pm, Walter Gors Park Dee Why
•    Fri 16 June 8-10:30am, Beaches Market, Narrabeen

Following the community consultation a recommendation will be put to Council.
