Residents can now vote on whether they would pay for the re-introduction of the city-wide collection of bulky waste from Orange nature strips.
Orange City Council opened a survey on Wednesday offering residents several options.
The survey results will be considered by council in deciding whether to re-introduce the service for everyone and/or keep the current user-pays service.
One option is for all households to pay an annual fee of $11.35 regardless of whether they used the scheme.
Another option is to retain the current user-pays system where residents can order a collection of two cubic metres of bulky waste from their residence which would cost $220.25.
Those two options are currently contained in council's draft budget.
Another option is a new user-pays system where if at least 30 residents order a two cubic metre collection for the same time, the charge would be reduced to $82.50 for each of those residents.
That option is currently not in the draft budget.
You can do the survey at the Orange City Council's Your Say section on its website.
