Service Updates – COVID

Due to our workforce being impacted by Public Health Orders surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak in Greater Sydney, some customers may experience delays with their bulk kerbside collection service. Your bulk kerbside collection service will be booked on the next available booking date. Please check your booking date and ensure your waste is not placed out on the kerbside until the day prior to collection.

Some services may also be delayed. Please leave your bins and booked bulk kerbside collections at the kerbside until they have been collected.

We thank you for your understanding.


COVID-19: Safe Waste Disposal Procedures

Any individuals asked to self-isolate, either as a precaution or because they are confirmed to have Coronavirus (COVID-19), should observe the following advice to dispose of their household waste to ensure the virus is not spread via personal waste:

• Individuals should place all personal waste such as used tissues, gloves, paper towels, wipes, and masks securely in a plastic bag or bin liner;
• Bag should be filled no fuller than 80% so that it can be tied securely without spillage;
• This plastic bag should then be placed in another plastic bag and securely tied;
• These bags must be disposed of in your red lidded garbage bin.
