Lithgow Council’s kerbside waste and recycling collections will occur as normal for the Christmas and New Year period.

Residents should put their bins out as usual on their collection day.

Christmas break is a great time to concentrate on recycling correctly. Don’t forget to recycle any glass, aluminum cans, cardboard & wrapping paper you might have by placing them in your bin with the yellow lid.

The most common forms of contamination are bottles and containers containing liquid and food scraps, and bagged recycling.  To prevent contamination, make sure that bottles and containers are emptied, and recycling is placed in the yellow lidded bin loose.
