Warrnambool City Council residents will receive an extra kerbside recycling collection over the festive period.

Regardless of when their usual recycling week is, everyone will have their recycling and rubbish bins collected in the week before Christmas and the week of Christmas.

The first extra service will be on December 17 for residents with a Sunday bin-night.

This service is being provided to residents for no additional cost.

Warrnambool City Council Manager City Amenity Glenn Reddick said that the additional service would provide the city’s residents with a greater capacity to manage their additional recyclables.

“This is the time of year when many residents’ recycling bins are approaching capacity,” he said.

“We want to ensure that all of the glass bottles, aluminium cans, cardboard boxes and even balls of wrapping paper that are so prevalent during Christmas and New Year are properly recycled and don’t end up in landfill.”

Due to Christmas falling on a Monday, there are changes to the kerbside collection nights for all residents for the weeks of Christmas and New Year. During these weeks, place your bins out one night later than usual.

For enquiries regarding kerbside collections, including missed bins, please contact Council’s kerbside collection contractor on 1800 999 690.
