The West Coast Council will be conducting its annual clean-up on Tuesday 8 and Wednesday 9 March with an extended list of items able to be collected as part of the initiative this year.
“Furniture, electrical appliances, green waste and car bodies can be collected as part of the 2016 Clean-Up,” General Manager Dirk Dowling said. “This will assist Council with sorting at landfill and reduce double-handling of waste items from our transfer stations.”
The annual clean-up has been held for many years, and previously restricted to smaller amounts of general and green waste. It is hoped that in expanding items able to be collected registrations will increase.
Normal kerbside wheelie bin collection will occur over the clean-up days. Broken glass, asbestos materials, fuels, oils, gas bottles and tyres are unable to be collected as part of the program.
Residents have until Monday 7 March to register to be included in the clean-up.
