Get up to speed with commercial dumping process Waste Management Facility users are being asked to brush up on the dos and donts of dumping commercial waste in the Roper Gulf region. The Council has released a flyer explaining why it has adopted a fee for the dumping of commercial waste at any of its Waste Management Facilities, and how the fees collected help to fund service and infrastructure delivery. For the 2016-17 financial year, it costs $70 per cubic metre to dump commercial waste. Further information on the fee is available on the Council website, with the flyers also being displayed in Council offices. Page 13 Out and About BIRDS-EYE VIEW: Manager Governance and Corporate Planning Amanda Haigh snapped this great shot of Roper Bar as she flew to Ngukurr for the Local Authority Meeting on November 16. A swag of Local Authority Meetings in the calendar meant despite the build-up heat, communities were still hives of Council activity during November. In addition, all roads led to Katherine for three days as Council Services Co-ordinators attended a forum to learn more about their roles under the new organisational structure. Roper Area Manager Janeen Bulsey and Borroloola Council Services Co-ordinator Fred Graham give their undivided attention to a CSC forum presenter. KNOW THE RULES: The Council is urging people using any of its Waste Management Facilities to get up to speed about commercial dumping fees.
