Here we go again, we see reported in the West another overseas junket trip for councils to look at how to manage waste?
What a joke, with the internet why is it necessary to travel over the world to see how to handle rubbish.
Just recently we see council in Fremantle approve the Mayors trip to Europe to see how our city can be made more liveable, another waste of rate payer’s money, then he was just recently off in Adelaide, now it’s to Poland to look at rubbish.
Last year it was Japan to see how the Japanese run an incinerator to burn waste.
Just recently Brad was quoted in the Herald as saying it’s a job for state government to handle. “Fremantle mayor Brad Pettitt supports the SMRC conducting the review but wants the WA government to take over waste management.”
So why does he need to go?
What’s the next trip going to be for?
Shouldn’t the issue be how to create less waste not just burn it, wouldn’t that be more sustainable than flying around the world burning jet fuel leaving a massive carbon foot print. It would certainly be more sustainable for our rates
