Options for the future of waste in the Blue Mountains
The following scenarios have been developed by Council as the options that are available to the Blue Mountains for managing its waste in the future. These have been modelled to give a sense of how they affect the Blue Mountains community from a financial, environmental and social point of view. These are outlined below.
Scenario 1: Continue current services (includes weekly garbage, weekly recycling, booked kerbside chipping and bulky waste)
Scenario 2: Introduce a fortnightly garden organics collection and discontinue the chipping service (weekly garbage, weekly recycling, booked kerbside bulky waste remains)
Scenario 3: Introduce a weekly food and garden organics collection, discontinue the chipping service and move to a fortnightly garbage collection (weekly garbage, weekly recycling, booked kerbside bulky waste remains)
Consultation has concluded.
