Council consults on waste facilities

Residents will soon have the opportunity to provide feedback on Council’s waste management facilities as postal surveys will be distributed to every household across the Gympie region from Monday June 18.

Portfolio Councillor for Waste and Sewerage and Waste Management, Hilary Smerdon, said that the survey aims to gauge resident feedback on current operating hours.

“Council has a budget allocated for the operating hours of each facility, which means that each facility is open to the public for a set number of hours each week,” he said.

“We would like to know how people are finding the current operating hours and if they have any suggestions for alternate hours.”

The feedback from the survey will be analysed along with visitor data from each facility, and a report prepared for Council with recommendations. Submissions close Friday, 13 July 2018. An online version of the survey will also be made available on Council’s website.
