There is still time to book and take advantage of Lithgow Council’s free green waste collection.
“There is still time for residents to book in for the next green waste service” said Lithgow City Mayor Councilor Stephen Lesslie.
“All people have to do is register and then leave any green waste at the kerbside near where they would normally place their garbage bin.”
Lithgow Council provides a free green waste collection service four times a year with the second of the year scheduled for the 3rd April 2017.
There are some rules to this free service and Council will pick up:
- Garden pruning’s no longer than 2 metres and not thicker than 200mm, tied in bundles
- Lawn clippings and leaves must be placed in a durable container, cardboard box or hessian/plastic bag
- A weight limit of 16 kilograms for each bundle or box applies
- Quantity of one cubic metres, which is equivalent to about 4 wheelie bins allowed per premises
Residents are urged to take advantage of this service which Council provides for the community. It’s the perfect time to get rid of those leaves, branches and prunings left over from the cooler months.
Anyone who wishes to take advantage of this service should, by midday on Friday the 31st March 2017, contact Council’s Customer Service Office on 6354 9999 or alternatively they may register on Council’s website www.council.lithgow.com. Then, on the night before Monday 3 April 2017, leave their green waste adjacent to where they would normally place their garbage bin for pickup.
