Media Response Charity Donation Bins

Questions and Responses

*Note: This media response came after Council distributed a media release about the introduction a permit process for charities and recycling donation organisations for donation bins on  Council-owned and managed land.  

My main question is that when the permit process comes into play, will it make it harder for charities or recycler organisations wanting to set up a donation bin? 

Not at all. This permit process is intended to ensure that legitimate charities and recycling organisations can continue their work in receiving donations to help the community and for Council to monitor and manage the issue of illegal waste dumping on land that we own and manage.
