One such promise is that of current Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, who plans to make recycling at Brisbane’s tips free of charge if the Liberal National Party is re-elected into the Brisbane Council.
The policy will apply at Brisbane’s tips at Nudgee, Willawong, Chandler and Ferny Grove at a cost of $4 million.
If the plan goes ahead, special entrances will be built at the rubbish tips that will create a “ring-road” that will guide users to special recycling bins, where they won’t have to worry about queuing and having their recycling waste weighed.
While households do get recycling vouchers that helps make a certain amount of recycling waste free; after the vouchers are used a trailer load of waste can cost up to $14 depending on weight.
If the recycling scheme does end up getting implemented it could be a great incentive for households to recycle more, which would mean less waste in landfills and a cleaner and healthier environment.
Free dumping of recycling could be an attractive promise for a lot of voters – but what do you think, would it get your vote? What other policies in the Brisbane City Council election appeal to you?
