Victorians looking down the barrel of another tax hike
It’s taken the Andrews Labor Government eight long months to come up with a ‘taskforce’ to address a looming crisis it has known about since July 2017.
Daniel Andrews’ and his environment minister Lily D’Ambrosio’s half-hearted approach to fixing the crisis in recyclable waste collection in Victoria will now cost Victorian ratepayers extra.
From 1 July 2018, Victorian ratepayers will be slugged with higher costs to have their recycling wheelie bins collected.
Victorians are already hurting with 12 new taxes under Daniel Andrews, on top of having the highest unemployment rate and the highest electricity costs in Australia.
