A reminder about bin placement during COVID-19

Bin collections are continuing as usual during this time.

When you place your bins out for collection, please make sure they are not obstructed. This will help reduce manual handling of bins and protect the health and safety of our drivers and community.

Bins should be placed at least one metre clear of parked cars, trees, light poles or any other obstructions, and positioned at least half a metre (50cm) apart.

You may notice that some bins may be collected a little earlier, this is to allow our contractor to stagger employee start times.

How to stay active

As we're all now spending a lot more time at home, staying as physically active as possible is more important than ever, for both our physical and mental health. To help you stay healthy and active new online fitness programs from both Belgravia Group, which operates Aquarena Aquatic and Leisure Centre, and the YMCA, which runs Mullum Mullum Stadium, provide a variety of home-based exercise options.
