Paterson Waste Services

Project Overview

Council is seeking public comment on whether residents in the Paterson area wish to receive a paid waste and recycling service.

Paterson is currently outside of the waste defined collection area; and property owners are not eligible for a waste and recycling kerbside collection service.

Cr Phil Truscott has recently received feedback from Paterson residents requesting a waste service to commence. Council has resolved to undertake consultation with the residents in the area to determine the level of support for a paid waste and recycling service. Please note the section below on how your fees and charges would change and what services would be included.

Please note if a kerbside collection service is established in Paterson, property owners will have to pay an additional $294.30 per year (2023/2024 fees) for the service and the charge will apply to all serviceable property owners within the expanded waste collection area.

Consultation has now closed. Council is now considering feedback from the Paterson community.
