COVID 19

Council has implemented strict protocols to ensure we comply with directions issued by government in relation to managing the COVID 19 risk. These protocols apply to our staff, our customers and visitors to our premises, and councillors alike. Some non-essential services have ceased altogether, others are still in operation but due to social distancing have added levels of complexity. Please be understanding that we will do our best to maintain services and help in what are unique and challenging circumstances.

Litter

Each year, over 25,000 tonnes of litter is tossed in NSW.
Litter damages our natural environments, harms wildlife and sea creatures, can injure people and makes our spaces less healthy. Cleaning up litter also costs taxpayers a lot of money. Don’t be a Tosser!

For more information on litter in NSW see: https://www.epa.nsw.gov.au/your-environment/litter-and-illegal-dumping/epa-work-prevent-litter/dont-be-a-tosser

Illegal Dumping

The NSW EPA provide an online reporting tool for Illegal Dumping. This tool is to be used if you find illegally dumped material anywhere in NSW, including, but not limited to: used household items, old tyres, green waste or construction waste.
