Have your say

The Whyalla residents pictured above shared their thoughts on the following question: 

Do you think the elected member for Giles should make the introduction of a free dump pass for each resident to allow for hard rubbish to be taken to the local dump at no charge? Why?

Illegal dumping continues to be an issue within the city as well as there being a common opinion that some residents need to address removing unwanted furniture and other items from their yards.

Labor candidate for Giles Eddie Hughes through his role as Whyalla City Council elected member said he would like to see a re-introduction of a hard rubbish kerbside collection system.

Yes, they should introduce a free dump day. It would take some pressure off the council in terms of the costs to clean up illegal dumping- Edward Freely.
