Council To Introduce Kerbside Recycling Service

At its Ordinary Council Meeting on Monday 11 December, the Alice Springs Town Council accepted a tender for the provision of a kerbside waste and recycling collection service.

From 1 July 2018, all rate paying non-rural properties in Alice Springs will receive a yellow-lidded 240 litre wheelie bin for recyclable items, which will be collected fortnightly. Existing 240 litre general waste bins will continue to be collected on a weekly basis.

The fee for this additional service in the 2018/19 financial year will be $60 to relevant rate paying properties, along with existing waste management charges.

At the meeting on Monday night, Council also released its draft 2018-2021 Strategic Plan for public comment.
