Quote Attributable to Mayor Stuart James.

Council is working with our contractor to minimise any impacts on service delivery regarding bin collections and we expect service to continue.

We have continued to inform our community of any delays and residents have understood that COVID impacts are being felt across all industries and organisations, and our residents are accepting that everyone is doing their best under these difficult circumstances.

Any changes to asymptomatic workers returning to the workplace would be a matter for the State Government, and Council will be guided by those directives, however we consider waste disposal to be an essential service.
