TAMS are saying that they’ve caught up on garbage collection just about.
The bins down David Street would beg to differ but let’s see what the afternoon brings:
The ACT Government has announced that Cleanaway has been able to organise extra shifts for drivers this afternoon to almost fully complete the backlog of rubbish bin collections.
Catch up collections will be done from 3 pm today for all remaining suburbs that haven’t been collected, with the exception of parts of Dickson and Downer.
These areas in Dickson and Downer will be collected as per their normal service on Friday. Another run of these areas will also take place on Saturday.
Tomorrow will see the scheduled Friday rubbish and recycling collections take place.
Recycling collections will be undertaken on Saturday in those suburbs which were missed last Friday.
The ACT Government has again extended the operating hours of Mitchell and Mugga Resource Management Centres until 6 pm tonight to allow people to dispose of the contents of their garbage bins free of charge if they are able. One free delivery will be available per vehicle. Normal charges apply for all other waste including additional household waste.
