Council’s rubbish push

MILDURA Council is leading a statewide push for the State Government to reinvest more money  into communities for environmental programs.

Mayor Glenn Milne said Mildura paid about $1 million to the State Government through the landfill levy but only received between $50,000 and $60,000 in return.

The council put forward a motion at a gathering of councils across the state on Friday, calling on the government to give communities at least half the money they paid in landfill levies.
