Council urges Woodville residents to utilise refuse stickers


As of 4 November 2016, Council will no longer sell stickers for refuse collection at the Woodville Service Centre, or supply refuse labels to Woodville retailers for resale.

This is the second stage in Council gradually withdrawing from the provision of refuse kerbside collection.

The Council refuse collection contractor will still pick up Council stickered bags during this transition period, as well as picking up the yellow Budget Waste bags.

Council encourages Woodville residents to use up any refuse stickers they have purchased over the upcoming weeks.

Why is Council exiting from kerbside refuse collection?

On 27 May 2015, through considering submissions following consultation on the Draft Long Term Plan 2015/2025, Council made the decision to exit the provision of kerbside refuse collection and leave it to the private sector, who can provide this service to the community more cost effectively than Council.

What about collection for kerbside recycling?

Council has no plans to exit the kerbside recycling collection service, as this would not be consistent with Council’s waste minimisation policy to encourage recycling and reduce waste volumes. Council will continue to provide recycling and transfer stations/landfills regardless of the decisions made for kerbside refuse collection.
