Junee Shire Council

New Bin Collection Service

9 Jan 2018 12:15 PM -
Council staff postponed their leave to help over the Christmas break when they heard about the new kerbside collection contractor issue.

A new Garbage Collection contractor was engaged late last year. We apologise that it hasn't started off as smoothly as we all would have liked, especially the disruption this caused over the Christmas break.

Unfortunately some bins have been missed on your usual collection days and this has understandably gotten people upset and led to confusion about what is happening. We apologise for the inconvenience, and for underestimating how much disruption appointing a new contractor has caused.

We are working with the contractor to rectify the situation as quickly as possible.

QUICK FACTS:

  • Garbage collection days stay the same for the majority of residents
  • Illabo and Bethungra’s collection day changed to Wednesday
  • Your garbage may be collected at a different time of day than you are used to
  • The Contractor was to start with a brand new truck however registration of that vehicle was delayed and the alternative truck broke down in Junee causing significant delays
  • Disruption is likely to continue for another couple of weeks. Your patience is greatly appreciated.

WHAT IS THE COUNCIL DOING:

  • Meeting with the Contractor daily to resolve issue as that arise
  • Maintaining a list of residents who contact the Council worried that their bin hasn’t been collected and keeping in contact with those people until their issue is resolved
  • Negotiating a refund from the Contractor for the disruption caused
  • Hired an additional Truck and Council Staff worked until 9pm one night collecting bins that were missed
  • Next month, the Junee Landfill will be open for a free tip day, for household waste. The free tip day will be advertised well in advance. Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page
