Tipping Point

This consultation has concluded. Please go to the website for information on the new kerbside waste collection service.

TIPPING POINT is the community’s chance to help shape the future of waste services in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area.

A new contract for the three bin kerbside waste collection service is set to begin in April 2017, presenting a prime opportunity to enhance the vast range of waste services provided by Council.

While the City is already kicking goals in waste reduction, if we want to go to the next level it needs to embrace a new and innovative system for waste collection and the recovery of reusable items and materials.

The focus of Tipping Point is to receive community input that will help inform the process to develop an enhanced system to collect and process waste materials at an appropriate and acceptable cost.

Results of the first round of consultation are currently being used to help inform the next kerbside waste collection contract.

Keep an eye on this webpage for updates and further opportunities to be a part of the conversation.

Background

A kerbside waste collection service is currently in place for Wagga Wagga and surrounding suburbs, as well as the villages of Oura, Mangoplah, Ladysmith and Tarcutta.

Council currently provides kerbside waste services to around 23,000 properties within the Local Government Area.

Council also operates the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre as well as seven Rural Waste Transfer Station Facilities.

Council is taking advantage of the process of renewing the kerbside waste collection contract to look at ways to further reduce the amount of recyclables, garden green waste and food organics that go into landfill.

There are a number of options available to assist this process, but significant community input is required in the planning stage to ensure that any potential changes are a success.

What’s up for discussion?

Anything relating to Council’s waste services, including:

  • introducing food organics collection and processing systems
  • voluntary increases in size of household recycling bins
  • new pre-booked bulky waste collections in lieu of Free Tip Days
  • extending kerbside waste collections
  • enhancing the Gregadoo Waste Management Centre
  • development of new waste recovery opportunities
  • What we need from you

Council received more than 4,500 surveys from residents on how they currently use waste services in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area and how we can enhance these services.

Residents that don't currently receive the service were also invited to provide feedback and nominate whether or not they would like to be included in the next kerbside waste collection contract.
