According to a council release the decision to open the Lithgow Solid Waste Facility on weekends follows recent NSW Government advice on how waste facilities can remain open under the restrictions in place for COVID-19.
Lithgow Solid Waste Facility will therefore re-open with the following new COVID-19 Risk Management protocols:
Council will continue to provide a kerbside service to manage essential waste and is asking residents to avoid visiting the waste facility where possible.
Residents must still abide by any other restrictions in relation to COVID-19 including the reasons for leaving home under the NSW Public Health Order.
The release stated that should residents find it necessary to dispose waste, there may be lengthy delays and people are asked to be patient and remain courteous to landfill staff.
It is essential that residents follow the new protocols on site to protect landfill workers, other customers and themselves.
The site will remain open under the new arrangements subject to the these protocols being effective and any further developments from the NSW or Commonwealth governments in relation to COVID-19.
Council thanks residents for their patience during this difficult time.
