Lane Cove News Week in Review 14th to 20th July

Welcome to our week in review.

The Lane Cove Council has released its June Snapshot.  This snapshot provides details of Lane Cove Council’s activities during the last month.  Two items stood out to In the Cove.

In June Lane Cove Council only achieved a landfill diversion rate of 39% against a target of 66%. This lower landfill diversion rate is due to changes in NSW regulations pertaining to the processing and application of organic material from household general waste bins. This material (compost material) can no longer be applied to land for agricultural purposes or mine rehabilitation. This announcement has direct implications for Council’s landfill diversion rate as a proportion of the general waste (red bins waste) has been processed into compost material at Veolia’s Mechanical and Biological Treatment (MBT) facility and previously applied to the Woodlawn site for mine rehabilitation works. Recyclables in the blue and yellow bin are still being recycled and are not being sent to landfill.  Find out more here.

Parking Infringements continue to be higher than in previous years.  Some of this can be attributed to the Lane Cove Market Square Carpark.  Remember if you think you have parked for over three hours, use the orange lane to exit.  You will be advised on exit if payment fees are payable.  If you leave the carpark without paying you have three days to pay via the website

Business Alert

After 20 years, Dymocks has closed its doors.  The Landlord has taken repossession of the premises.  ITC spoke to the owner earlier this year and he told ITC that ever since the Rosenthal Avenue carpark development started, his business has suffered.
