BAYSWATER ratepayers might have to put up with mounting rubbish after contractor Transpacific grounded its national fleet pending a safety review.
The company operates rubbish collection services across Australia, including Bayswater, and is conducting a safety review following a fatal accident in Adelaide on Monday.
“At this stage it is uncertain when operations will recommence, however, the city will work with Transpacific Cleanaway in any way necessary to minimise the inconvenience caused and residents should still place their bins out for collection on their normal days,” Bayswater spokesperson Jennie Arts says.
“Whilst this situation is regrettable the safety of the workers involved is paramount and the city supports all efforts to ensure that works undertaken by Transpacific Cleanaway on behalf of the city are carried out in a safe manner.
“The city will provide further information via its website as it becomes available.”
