The Lake Macquarie Liberal team have announced that they will fight to reverse Lake Macquarie City Councils decision to abolish weekly bin pickups.
Mayoral candidate Cr Jason Pauling said “While we support the move to weekly pickups for green bins, we totally oppose the removal of weekly bin pickups – this is just Council removing services, and masking it under a sustainability banner, whist rates continue to rise.”.
“Anyone who has children at home knows how smelly nappies and other items can build up a stench over a week – just imagine what that’s going to be like over a fortnight in summer, and that’s even before we get to the Christmas prawns!” Cr. Pauling added.
“Lake Macquarie prides itself on being a liveable city, and only the Lake Macquarie Liberals will ensure that Council retains these essential services.”
