Online poll delivers a clear message to council

IN AN online poll run by the QT yesterday, 94% of readers voted in favour of an annual free kerbside collection throughout Ipswich.

On the QT Facebook page more than 100 readers liked the post asking "should Ipswich have an annual kerbside clean-up like Brisbane?" Within a few hours of publishing the poll online, another 150 voted in the QT poll and more than 80 people made comments on Facebook, answering the question with an overwhelming "yes".

Linda Thomas said in Sydney councils held one every three months.

"In Ipswich we have one every three years," she said. "It stops people hoarding rubbish."

Rosie Towers said she thought all councils carried out a regular free kerbside clean-up.

"I was amazed when I moved here 11 years ago that this didn't happen," she said.

Yvonne Beekhuyzen said the level of waste services offered in Ipswich was dropping.

"They used to every year, then every two years," she said. "Then they said you have free dumps, then they put fees on the dump. Then increased the fees."

Nicole Goldby said it was an essential service.

"Not everyone has the ability to get stuff to the tip if it doesn't fit in the wheelie bins," she said.
