Council closes Revolve Shop as COVID-19 precaution
Wednesday, 18 March 2020
Lismore City Council is taking a proactive approach in response to the rapidly-changing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and has closed the Lismore Revolve Shop indefinitely.
David Hanna, Council’s Commercial Services Manager, said the closure was a preventative measure to support the health and wellbeing of the community and staff and volunteers at the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre in Wyrallah Road.
The Lismore Revolve Shop can have up to 150 customers in a single day, Mr Hanna said, with sometimes lengthy discussions between staff and customers.
“Staff do not have the ability to monitor or supervise these numbers of people, who may attend and gather in groups within the shop. The closure will also help Council with resource planning to keep other services up and running," he said.
“Council has decided that closing the shop now is a sensible precautionary measure aimed at protecting community members and staff, and slowing the spread of the virus within the community. The safety of our communities, customers and employees is our top priority.”
Council has also implemented some changed practices at the Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) bulk collection centre to minimise person-to-person contact.
After a short closure period this week to implement these measures, the CDS bulk collection centre returned to service this afternoon.
“We ask that customers work with the interim arrangements at the centre, and follow instructions from facility staff so the centre is able to continue operating,” Mr Hanna said.
Council has also closed the Lismore and Goonellabah Libraries until further notice. Community members can still access services via the eLibrary online at www.rtrl.nsw.gov.au or via the Richmond Tweed Library app. If you have enquiries, phone Lismore Library on 6621 2464 or Goonellabah Library on 6625 1235.
Lismore City Council will continue to communicate any changes to facilities or services as the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation unfolds. Ongoing updates are available at www.lismore.nsw.gov.au.
