New Waste Agreement signed

Shire of Mundaring has entered into an agreement with the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) for the collection of waste and ancillary services. The new agreement follows the decision by long-term service-provider Volich Waste to wind up operations ahead of the owner’s retirement.

Shire President James Martin said Council had considered several options for a new service provider. The EMRC proved a viable option based on anticipated cost benefits for the Shire and its residents.

“The Shire and EMRC routinely collaborate on projects and initiatives and this new agreement is an extension of our well-established relationship,” he said.

“The agreement comes into effect on 1 July 2023.”

“There will be no change to collection dates or times for residents.”

EMRC CEO Marcus Geisler said the EMRC Regional Waste Collection Service is part of an integrated waste management system that will bring service and cost benefits to the Shire of Mundaring and its residents. The optimisation of truck routes and disposal locations will lead to decreased traffic congestion as well as reduced air and noise pollution. It will also provide an increased diversion of waste from landfill.

“We look forward to contributing a fantastic service to the residents of the Shire of Mundaring,” he said.
