There is still time to book and take advantage of Lithgow Council’s free green waste collection scheduled to commence on 12 October 2015.
“There is still time for residents to book in for the next green waste service” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Councillor Maree Statham.
“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.”
There are some rules to this free service and Council will pick up:
- Garden pruning’s no longer than 2 metre 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 metre, which is equivalent to about 4 wheelie bins allowed per premises
Anyone who wishes to take advantage of this service should, by midday on Friday the 9 October 2015, 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 12 October 2015, leave their green waste adjacent to where they would normally place their garbage bin for pickup.
To provide environmental leadership and ‘Enhancing our Natural Environment’ Strategies in the Community Strategic Plan 2026 by managing and providing green waste recycling within the Lithgow Local Government area.
