A MERRIWA resident has called on the City of Wanneroo to provide a refuse drop so people can empty toilets in caravans and four-wheel-drive vehicles.

Making the request at the council’s April 4 meeting, Lewis Flood said there were currently only private facilities within the City. His question was taken on notice and acting assets director Grant Chettleburgh provided a response in the minutes.

“The City does not currently provide disposal sites for human effluent from caravans and recreational vehicles,” Mr Chettleburgh said.

“Facilities are available in caravan parks across Perth including the Kingsway Tourist Park located in Madeley that charge a fee for this service.

“The City’s waste services team is responsible for the collection of domestic waste from residential properties, street and park bins, and annual bulk junk and greens collections.”

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City would investigate the suggestion to see if there was anything it could do.
