​Council has taken the first steps in aligning household waste collection and processing contracts for the City of Canterbury Bankstown.

Administrator Richard Colley said the decision should achieve savings up to $200,000 a year.

“We took the opportunity to enter into short-term contracts for the Bankstown area so, once the contracts expire for the Canterbury area, a new long-term deal for the entire new city can be secured by 2020,” Mr Colley said.

Council has decided to continue with the current contractors delivering the bi-annual household clean-up collection service, green bin collection service, and green bin processing service in Bankstown.

Mr Colley said 20,000 tonne of material placed in the green bins by local residents is processed each year.

“That material will continue to be turned into compost and mulch, and provided free- of-charge to residents through our award-winning Wheelie Good Compost and Mulch program,” Mr Colley said.

“We are working hard to not only continue the great level of service our residents have come to expect from us, but also find efficiencies which ensure we achieve savings.

“These savings will be invested in further road maintenance, footpath construction, park upgrades and library technology.

“Over the past seven months, we have achieved more than $3 million in annual savings.

“I want to take this opportunity to congratulate the General Manager and the staff on the work they are doing to align services across the new city. This is not an easy task and takes time.

“But they have set the bar high and are achieving great results.”
