“Depending on the option chosen, residents will need to pay an extra $3 to $4 a week for their waste service,” said Mr Harris
“In the forums, there are a handful of people saying they don’t mind paying extra—but it’s important to get a whole of Coast view.
“It’s also not just about cost, people may have very strong views about the type of facility we use and it’s important they know what’s involved with each facility.”
Residents can review the options online, and then choose whether they want to answer a quick poll, answer questions about cost, the process and the environment, post feedback or take the full survey. The deadline for submission is 25 November 2011.
