Waste Collections Update - 25/3/21

We are continuing to collect waste from the eastern side of the river from parts of McGraths Hill and Bligh Park, Oakville, Vineyard, Windsor and Windsor Downs. We are keeping as close to your scheduled pick up days as we can so please put your bins out as normal.

The western side of the river has been more of a challenge with no access. Until a few hours ago, we had nowhere to take the waste that we had collected in our trucks over the last few days from properties on the western side of the River.

We can now advise that we have just secured approval from the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) to set up a temporary site on the western side of the river for Council to take our waste trucks, so waste collections to this area will commence shortly.

We are currently getting the site set up and planning the route for the trucks. The current plan is to start the collections first thing tomorrow morning at the following locations:

Missed parts of Kurmond
Grose Vale
Grose Wold
North Richmond
Agnes Banks

We will update the community with additional collection locations once we have further information.

We understand that our residents have more waste to dispose of due to the missed services, but we ask that you please DO NOT overload your bins as this may lead to further missed services if your bin is TOO HEAVY to collect. Please bag any extra rubbish and we will return for additional collections as required. We will update the community with further information as it comes to hand.

Thank you for your patience, we appreciate your understanding at this time.
