City extends no waste-bin zone to Murdoch Valley area<p>​The pilot project was launched in Miller’s Point in February 2021. Following on from the initial success in Miller’s Point, the City decided to extend the pilot no waste-bin zone in the suburban coastal areas of Murdoch Valley as well.</p><p>The pilot projects are being undertaken by the City’s Environmental Management Department in consultation with Solid Waste Cleansing. </p><p>‘We have installed signs to inform visitors of the no waste-bin bin zone, and the bins in these areas will be removed by today. There are few shops or commercial outlets at these fairly remote coastal areas. Therefore, everything that comes into the area is brought in by the visitors themselves, and waste must be taken home with them,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Marian Nieuwoudt.</p><p>Waste bins are often knocked over by the wind or the local baboon troops, resulting in litter being blown across the coastal landscape by the strong south-easterly winds.</p><p>‘The public’s response to the new approach has been encouraging and the City is optimistic that residents will support the no waste-bin zone in Murdoch Valley as well. We kindly request residents and visitors to please participate and take responsibility for their own waste by taking it home with them,’ said Alderman Nieuwoudt.</p><p>The success of the pilot will be evaluated on an ongoing basis. <br></p>2021-05-20T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#0ab901dc-08fc-4328-86e9-d67d3a0317b4;L0|#00ab901dc-08fc-4328-86e9-d67d3a0317b4|spacial planning and land use management;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb10
