Change to services due to COVID-19 lockdown

Monday, 04 October 2021

Residents and businesses are asked to follow the NSW Health Restrictions at all times. Please stay at home unless you have an essential reason to leave home.

To comply with these restrictions, Council has closed the Lismore Recycling & Recovery facility and the Nimbin Transfer Station to all non-essential customers. Generally, this means facilities are closed to the public who have access to kerbside collection services.

We have now introduced an electronic booking form to allow essential customers to drop off their waste at Council’s Wyrallah Road facility and the Nimbin Transfer Station. These will be a cashless transaction-based service. Essential customers are those residents and businesses that do not have kerbside collection services.

It is essential that those dropping off their waste use the booking form to ensure social distancing and so Council can comply with its COVID-safe plan and legal obligations. If Council is unable to manage attendance at the facility via the booking system to meet its obligations, the facility will need to be closed.

The NSW Health Restrictions will apply at all times. Customers unable to comply with these restrictions will not be permitted access to site. These are necessary measures to ensure the safety of council staff and all members of our community.

Some of the usual sorting arrangements within the Lismore Recycling and Resource Recovery Facility have been temporarily suspended and customers without kerbside collection will need to unload their own vehicles.
