Edith Farms rubbish plea

Edith Farms residents are making headway on a push to have a rubbish collection service.

Katherine Town Council has been asked to make a decision on whether to provide a waste service to Edith Farms properties accessible via an ‘all weather’ road and provide a waste service  for properties located on a ‘non all weather’ road.

Before making any decision council plans to consult with the Edith Farms community about their views on the introduction of a waste service.

Currently there are 295 properties in the municipality that do not receive a waste service, inclusive of the 107 properties at Edith Farms.

This includes Edith Farms, Beasley, Sullivan, Woollybutt and Rutherven roads.

Council is looking to engage with the Edith Farms community and all Edith Farms property owners.

A meeting has been planned for 10am, Saturday, May 26 at Edith Farms Volunteer Fire Brigade on Edith Farms Road.

Invitations have been posted to all Edith Farms property owners.

If you are an Edith Farms property owner and not received an invitation please contact naomi.hunter@ktc.nt.gov.au.
