Consulting the Community

Kerbside Cleanup Survey

Hawkesbury City Council is undertaking a public consultation process to gauge the needs of the community for household bulk waste (kerbside cleanup) services.

As part of this process, members of the community are encouraged to participate in an online survey which is available to the public until 17 December. The feedback will be included with the other forms of public consultation underway to enable Council to make informed decisions about any future household bulk waste cleanup services.

Other ongoing consultation includes focus groups (chosen from volunteers who previously participated in the Hawkesbury Community Strategic Plan) and an extensive telephone survey of a cross section of the Hawkesbury community.

Various options are being considered such as:

* Residents make their own arrangements for bulk waste disposal
* Continue the existing “on call” service
* Provide a “scheduled” service to the existing properties with a service
* Expand “on call” service to all properties with a garbage service or
* Pay per use – council charges a fee as residents use the service.

You are invited to have your say on this matter, by going to Council''s web page at www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au and following the links to the community consultation section to complete the survey. For enquiries, contact Regulatory Services via 4560 4444 or Garry Baldry on 4560 4542.
