Rubbish Collection

Joel has communicated with Russell Chaplin at BSC about
waste collection for East Tyagarah, and has formally requested council. See

Mr. Russell Chaplin,
Manager Waste Services,
Byron Shire Council
17 June 2002

Dear Russell,

I have surveyed our progress association members, and with one exception, they would like the service. Im now writing to you to formally request that council surveys residents in our area about their support for a collection services.

Tyagarah Progress Association Survey Results: Generally strong support
Style of bin preferred : Separate waste and recycling bins, as used currently with Getta Garbo
A strong preference for avoiding split bins, due to people contaminating the recycling section and not being able to fit normal filled garbage bags into the smaller opening.
Preferred two separate bins, one waste and one recycling, collected half as often would be much preferable.

Can you please advise if this style of service is possible ?

Communities/Multiple occupancies able to nominate number of bins to match waste stream: For a community which has a smaller waste stream per capita than average, they would appreciate the ability to nominate the number of bins required to match their waste stream.

Request for Exemption due to small waste stream: Another neighbour, Mr Jim Croft through waste minimization has a very low waste output, so low that he strongly prefers not to have a service. To reward people with a low waste stream, it would be appreciated if Mr Croft could be exempted from the waste collection service.

Streets for coverage: These streets for coverage proposed are in the area accessed via Grays Lane, east of Pacific Highway from Tyagarah straight :- Grays Lane, Prestons Lane, McInnes Lane, Buckleys Lane

We spoke earlier today about collection at Tyagarah.

To start initial discussion with the community, I would appreciate knowing how MOs might be accommodated.

We have a number of conventional households plus 2 MOs. One of them currently puts out 4 bins each week for Richmond waste. They are quite low waste producers per capita. How would your system deal with MOs. Is there a way for the MO to nominate and pay for the number (or size) of weekly bins they need, as the number of bins is less than the number of households, which is around 10.
