SURVEY Due back by 26 february

 

At the General Meeting today held at the Muckadilla Hall, Maranoa Regional Council Representatives attended and put forward the following options regarding the Transfer Station.

The three options that Council seeks input from own community are identified below, however a member of the community should propose another solution, we would encourage such feedback to come in for consideration.

Option 1:

Council can lock the facility and provide keys to residents

1.     Until July 2014, there would be no charge for the key to members of the community, however in the new financial year there will be a fee. 

2.     Keys could only be removed from the lock by being placed back into the lock position

3.     Rural residents wanting to access facility would also pay an annual fee for a key

4.     Council would install signage for better waste separation (recycling purposes)

5.     Those found to be doing the wrong thing could be subject to illegal dumping fines

 Option 2:

Council supply wheelie bins to residents and close the current waste facility altogether

1.       Bins emptied weekly

2.       Waste charge - $212.06 per year ($106.03 half year) this fee is imposed on the rates notice.  (These fees are for the 2013/2014 financial year)

3.       Commercial businesses (eg. Pub, service station and workshop) would need to source own industrial bins (eg. JJ Richards, Toxfree, Roma Skips) or opt into wheelie bin service

 Option 3:

Council supply wheelies bins and keep facility but still keep locked and give keys out.

1.       Amount of waste taken to this site should reduce significantly with wheelie bins being supplied to urban residents

2.       If facility is used properly, maintenance costs should be lower (less time required to clean up)

 

If you could please highlight the option number you prefer and send back to me or place in the survey box at the Muckadilla Service Station.

OPTIONAL ONLY:  So we can gauge the use of the Transfer Station, please write your name and address below:-

NAME:                                                         ADDRESS:

 

PLEASE NOTE 

Council’s annual kerbside clean-up is an opportunity for residents to get rid of bulk items, scrap metal, green waste this will be done in March, and residents should receive a flyer in the mail soon advising of the day for Muckadilla.

 

Thanks for your support and hoping you all complete this survey to make Muckadilla a clean and tidy place to live.

Donna Sutton - Secretary

Mrs Kay Crosbie

Maranoa Regional Council

ROMA  Q   4455

 

Dear Kay,

Please see attached the survey for the Muckadilla Community Transfer Station.  It was a numerous decision of the residences and property owners of the Muckadilla Community to select Option One of this survey.

 

It was the decision of the meeting to have the following items located at the Transfer Station,

so as the town of Muckadilla is not disadvantaged by having this dump area located in the middle of the town.

ü Trees planted to provide a tidy clean area and camouflage from the town area.

ü Signage for better waste separation - designated  area for bottles/green matter waste

ü Signs on gate for lawful dumping of rubbish from other persons

ü Provide industrial bins for paper/card board/plastic (so as not to blow away)

ü Lock the gate

 

Thanks for your support towards the Muckadilla Community.

 

Kind regards

Donna Sutton

Secretary
