Waste—green waste service relocation(Question No 167)

Mrs Kikkert asked the Minister for Transport and City Services, upon notice, on 1 April 2021:

(1) In relation to the relocation of the Parkwood Green Waste, when will the green waste service provided by Canberra Sand and Gravel (CSG) be relocating.

(2) Has the Government been in consultation with CSG about possible relocation area options; if so, (a) what areas for relocation have been discussed and (b) is there a confirmed location for relocation; if not, is there a shortlist of relocation options.

(3) Will the ACT Government be financially assisting the relocation in any way.

(4) Is it the preference of either the ACT government or CSG to remain in the West Belconnen area?

(5) What other progress has been made with CSG regarding the relocation.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) The licence for the facility will cease on 30 June 2021 to facilitate the remediation and handover of the West Belconnen Resource Management Centre to the Ginninderry Joint Venture. A longer-term solution for the acceptance of green waste for Belconnen and North Canberra is being investigated as part of analysis of Territory-wide waste infrastructure needs. Garden waste can be disposed of at Corkhill Bros. located at the Mugga Lane Resource Management Centre; this service is free-of-charge for members of the public. Residents can also apply for a green bin as part of the Green Bin Collection Service which provides a fortnightly household collection of garden waste.

(2) No.

(3) There are no plans to do so at this time.
