TAMS are undertaking trial measures to combat the illegal dumping through the “Charity Bins Pilot Project”. The Pilot Project will test two main strategies – “enhanced enforcement” and “practice change”. This Pilot will run from 1 August until 28 February 2013. the intent is to collect data on the amount of illegal dumping within selected areas and monitor how different strategies may effect the incidence of illegal dumping in trail regions.
“Practice Change” will involve the removal of Chairty Bins from local shopping centres in Weston Creek [Waramanga, Duffy, Rivett, Fisher and Holder] and Charities have the opportunity to place two donation bins at Cooleman Court. Signage will be placed where the bins have been removed, stating the alternate location at Cooleman Court where donations can be made.
