Fortnightly waste collection to be introduced in City of Victor Harbor

The City of Victor Harbor has endorsed the implementation of fortnightly kerbside collection. However, the council is still to decide whether it will be implemented from 1 July 2019 or in 2020.

A workshop in February will allow elected members to find out more about the financial implications of introducing fortnightly kerbside collection from 1 July 2019 before making a formal decision.

“Local landfills are full and the State Waste Levy is significant, plus the cost to transport waste outside of the Fleurieu region is continually growing. However, it was the environmental factors that motivated the council’s decision to introduce fortnightly kerbside collection,” said City of Victor Harbor Mayor Moira Jenkins.

“We have a responsibility to work towards a better future for the next generations, and introducing measures to reduce waste to landfill will help us do this.”

“The City of Victor Harbor has been keenly watching the implementation of fortnightly collection in our neighbouring councils of Alexandrina and Yankalilla, and views the change in service as a way to make council’s waste management system sustainable into the future.”

Following one year of kerbside collection the Alexandrina Council area experienced a reduction of 20% in waste to landfill, and green waste and recyclables increased by 63% and 31% respectively.

The City of Victor Harbor is expected to make a formal decision relating to the timing of the fortnightly collection implementation before the end of February.

Further information will be available via Council’s website – www.victor.sa.gov.au – following the council decision.
