Hawkesbury City Council changes waste collection to days rather than nights for safety reasons

GENERAL waste collection times will be changing for some residents in the Hawkesbury soon, with all waste collections to be during the day rather than the evening, effective from the week commencing August 26.

Residents who already receive morning collections will not have any changes to their collection times.

All general waste collection will now occur during the day.

All general waste collection will now occur during the day.

The changes to evening general waste collections are being made following a review by Council.

Council's review of the general waste service collection schedules established that morning and afternoon collections would provide safer work conditions and improved customer service.

In light of this, all general waste collections will be conducted during the day in order to maintain an efficient, safe and reliable general waste collection to all residents.

Only areas that currently have evening waste collection times will change, which will apply to around 50 per cent of Hawkesbury residents.

For residents who had evening collections, the general waste will now be collected earlier in the day on the next business day. For instance, if the general waste was collected Thursday evening, it will now be collected on Friday during the day. Residents will be required to put their general waste bin out before 4am on the day of collection.

There will be no changes to green waste or recycling service collection times.
