​The City of Canterbury Bankstown is pursuing its legal options, over issues which are preventing the contractor commissioned to carry out waste services in Canterbury to do so.

Mayor Khal Asfour said Cleanaway has been experiencing staff shortages and vehicle breakdowns for a number of weeks now. This has impacted domestic red, yellow and green waste services, along with household clean-ups.

“This is unacceptable and I apologise for the inconvenience caused to some of our residents in Canterbury,” he said.

“While Cleanaway is currently trying to rectify the situation, the fact remains it has been unable to carry out the service we pay it to do, to the level required and expected.

“This has been happening for a number of weeks now, leading into Christmas, then the new Year and now Australia Day.”

Fortunately, Council staff who deliver the services in Bankstown are assisting by doing extra work, on top of their normal schedule, but there are some delays in the removing of green waste and household clean-ups in Canterbury.

“I want to thank our great staff because without their assistance, we would be facing a crisis in the Canterbury part of our City,” Mayor Asfour said.

“I assure residents, we are doing everything we can to get the service back on schedule as soon as possible.

“In the meantime, we won’t be paying Cleanaway for the services it hasn’t been able to provide and are currently pursuing our legal options.

“We also anticipate that, once the Canterbury contract expires and we are in a position to align all waste services across the City, this kind of situation can be avoided in the future,” Mayor Asfour said.
