Waste collection in Campaspe Shire will change for two weeks during the festive season.December 11, 2013 4:50am
Businesses and residents across Campaspe Shire should note changes to waste, recycling and greenwaste collections over the Christmas and New Year period.
With public holidays falling on midweek days during the festive period, council’s waste and recycling service providers have had to change their collection days for two weeks.
The changes will affect households and businesses that normally have their rubbish, recycling or greenwaste collected on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
Council’s environment and waste spokesman Greg Toll said the changes would affect businesses and households in many parts of the shire including Rushworth, Stanhope, Kyabram, Tongala, Lancaster, Koyuga and Wyuna.
‘‘If your bins are normally emptied on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday this applies to you, so take note,’’ Cr Toll said.
During the holiday period, collections normally made on these days will be done one day later than normal.
‘‘If you put it out on the usual day, it wont be emptied until the next day,’’ he said.
There will be no change for business owners and householders who have their rubbish and recycling collected on Monday and Tuesday.
Cr Toll urged affected residents to make a note of the changes and to remind their neighbours if necessary as well.
If for some reason a collection is missed, residents can take their rubbish to the Echuca Environment Centre or transfer stations including those at Mount Scobie, Rushworth and Rochester, for a fee.
Opening hours for these locations can be found on council’s website at www.campaspe.vic.gov.au or by phoning 1300
