Please be advised that the twice weekly household rubbish collection service has been reduced to once weekly only, effective 25 March 2020. Standard rubbish bin collection will now only take place every Tuesday in Nullagine and Marble Bar.
The collection of the household rubbish bins is not automated, requiring staff to manually handle and move bins into place to be lifted into the hopper of the Shire’s rubbish trucks.
The safety of our staff is paramount and by reducing handling of rubbish bins we minimise the risk of exposure and transmission of COVID-19.
During the collection process, Shire staff will spray the handles of the rubbish bins with a disinfectant such as diluted methylated spirits and/or bleach. Please be aware that this solution will be on the bin handle when retrieving the emptied bins from the verge.
We would like to thank residents for their understanding in this challenging time. If you have any questions, please call the Shire on 9175 8000
