(1) In relation to the two waste contracts, Contract No. C02386 Provision of Domestic Waste and Recyclable Materials Collection Services and C07266 Management of the site services and landfill operations at the Mugga Land Resource Management Centre (RMC), under the current contract arrangements would it be possible to reduce the frequency of kerbside collection of the green topped bin for garbage to a fortnightly collection service and what would the costing savings be of this compared to the present weekly service.

(2) Under the current contract arrangements, would the Government face any financial penalties for changing the frequency of kerbside collection service of green topped bin for garbage; if so, what would these be.

(3) Does the current contract include capital costs to provide green topped bins for garbage for new residences or to replace damaged (green-topped) bins and what are the costs per bin (broken down by operating costs and capital costs).

(4) Under the current contract, what is the average cost per dwelling of the present kerbside collection service of the green topped bin for garbage, and what would the cost per dwelling be for a reduced fortnightly service of the green topped bin for garbage.

Ms Gallagher: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) Under the current contract provisions there are no clauses to allow for such a change.

(2) There is no provision within the current contract to change the frequency of the service. This cannot be quantified without negotiations being undertaken with the contractor.

(3) A capital cost of $38.39 is charged to TAMS for new bins plus a delivery cost of $11.00 for each new bin. Damaged bins are repaired and or replaced by the contractor at their cost.

(4) The 2012 average annual cost per dwelling of the kerbside collection is $40.96.This figure does not include ACT NOWaste contract management costs The cost per dwelling to reduce the delivery frequency of this service cannot be calculated for the reasons in (2) above.
