COTTESLOE residents are being asked to say how they want household waste disposed.

“The council, as a member of the Western Metropolitan Regional Council, is calling on residents to help change the way waste is created and managed in WA” Mayor Phil Angers said.

WA’s waste strategy is currently being reviewed.

Mr Angers said public comment would help a long-term plan to reduce rubbish, have better waste collection, greater recycling and more recovery of valuable waste, so less would go to landfill.

Cottesloe will be part of a joint submission with its neighbouring councils to the review.

A survey is at www.surveymonkey.com/r/Waste_Strategy_Review, and review information is at www.wasteauthority.wa.gov.au, before submissions are due by 5pm on March 1.
