Council Election Candidate Resources
Nominations for candidates to stand for local government elections open on August 1 and close at midday August 10.
In NSW a Candidate Diversity Strategy has been implemented to attract a more diverse range of candidates for the Local Government elections in 2016.
As part of this the Office of Local Government has developed a range of resources for councils to use on their website and other communication channels. The materials are aimed at increasing the representation of our diverse communities.
This is a service by request. To register, phone Council or complete the form on council’s website before 12 noon on the Friday before the scheduled collection.
Then on Sunday of the collection week, place the material at the kerbside where you normally leave your garbage bin. Please note, the service is only available to those residents who have a weekly garbage collection service.
The Contractor will collect bulky materials, cases, boxes, cartons and securely tied bundles capable of being picked up by two (2) men.
Liquid or material, which requires the use of a shovel or any toxic or chemical material will not be removed.
Material left for collection will be removed on either the Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday following the collection date
Your decision to become an Australian Citizen is an important one. Australian Citizenship is a privilege that offers enormous rewards. By becoming an Australian citizen, you are joining a unique national community.
The first step is to take the citizenship test, it’s designed to assess whether you have an adequate knowledge of Australia and the responsibilities and privileges of citizenship.
If you are interested in becoming an Australian Citizen please go to https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Citi for further information.

- Weight limit of 16 kilograms for each bundle or box.
- Quantity of 1 cubic metre (about 4 wheelie bins) for each collection.
To register for this service phone Council on 6354 9999 or complete the on-line form by 12 noon on the Friday before the collection date.
On the Sunday night of the collection week, simply put your materials at the kerbside where you leave your mobile garbage bin.

Homework Zone is a free service offered at Lithgow Library every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3.30pm to 5.30pm during school terms.

This service is specifically targeted for students in Years 3-12. There’s no need to book, just turn up for support for your studies.
Persons considering nominating for the elections may wish to view candidate information on the NSW Electoral Commission’s website.
