Lithgow COVID-19 Response - Waste Services

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 25 Aug 2021
Further updates are now available on waste management during the current COVID-19 situation following advice from the NSW Environment Protection Authority.

Currently Lithgow Solid Waste Facility, Portland Waste Depot and Wallerawang Waste Depot remain closed to the general public.

The NSW Office of Local Government has forwarded advice to all councils from the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) that travelling for waste disposal is not a reason for leaving home with the following advice provided:

“NSW is in lockdown and all residents are required to limit their movements, and stay at home. No member of the public should be visiting a recycling or waste management facility as it is not one of the essential reasons for leaving your home.

For people living in regional NSW who don’t have a council waste collection and take their own household waste to landfill, they must store this waste safely at home in a durable bag/container and not visit the waste depot until the restrictions are lifted.”

The current landfill closures for Lithgow are to remain in place until restrictions are lifted or there is a change in the public health advice.

All kerbside collection services continue to operate as per normal. This includes weekly kerbside waste, fortnightly recycling and next months scheduled green waste clean-up commencing 27th September 2021.

Council takes advice on all public health matters from the State and Federal health departments and may need to update its response should the situation change.

Council understands that extenuating circumstances arise that require the disposal of essential waste. If you believe that your situation is in fact extenuating, arrangements may be made for residents requiring the disposal of essential waste, e.g. rotting food waste, by contacting the Lithgow Solid Waste Facility gatehouse on 0417-838-425.   Rural transfer stations will also remain available for rural residents who do not have access to a kerbside service, however surveillance is in place and this will be reviewed if the facilities are not strictly used for this purpose.
