One of the year’s major events was the withdrawal of the green waste contract by the Government. They had the option to extend the contract for another two years but decided for a number of reasons not to do so.
Reasons for not extending the contract:
- The Department needed to fund other projects
- The other Sites paid for the disposal of their green waste and the Department deemed it unfair the Southern had theirs paid for, it decided to pay for the rent of the Site as part of their policy in treating all Sites equally.
The Board looked at a variety of options and determined it would be best to carry on with composting, offer screened material back to the public for a small donation ( to offset the costs of screening) with pre-screened material freely available in small or large quantities. The Douglas Corporation Composting machine shreds the material two days a fortnight.
