Waste services will operate as normal over the Easter break
8 April 2020
Southern Downs Regional Council is working hard to ensure that residents still experience the same high level of service amid COVID-19 restrictions, and waste management services will operate as normal on the Southern Downs over the Easter break.
The Warwick and Stanthorpe Waste Facilities will be open 7am – 6pm over the break, whilst all other supervised waste facilities will be open 8am – 5pm.
Residents are reminded that the Endeavour Foundation tip shops at the Warwick and Stanthorpe Waste Facilities remain closed until further notice and that Council’s waste facilities now only accept EFTPOS (credit cards and debit cards) and account payments.
A Council spokesperson said that the decision to move to a cashless model at the facilities was based on hygiene concerns and social distancing restrictions as per Government advice and requirements.
Kerbside waste collection services will also operate as normal over Easter, and residents need to have their wheelie bins ready for collection by 6am on their regular collection day.
Council will continue to be guided by advice from the State and Federal Governments with decisions regarding its services to keep the community and staff safe.
Council appreciates the community’s understanding during these times of change.
