Garbage and recycling collections will not be affected by the October long weekend and garbage and recycling collections will occur as normal.
“The garbage and recycling collection service will occur as normal on Monday and residents should put their bins out as usual. All landfills and transfer stations will also be operational.” said Lithgow City Council Mayor, Councillor Maree Statham.
“Also, whilst enjoying this long weekend don’t forget to recycle any glass, aluminium cans and cardboard you might have by placing them in your bin with the yellow lid, to reduce unnecessary waste entering our landfill.” concluded Mayor Statham.
Implementing the waste management hierarchy of avoidance, reuse, recycle and dispose forms part of the Developing Built Environment strategies in the Lithgow Community Strategic Plan 2026.
