Council Welcomes Decision by Drivers to Return to Work


Tuesday, 7 June 2016


Central Coast Council has welcomed the decision by striking garbage truck drivers to return to work today.

The drivers are already back on the job and have started with bin collections from last Thursday (when the strike began) and will work to catch up what has been missed since then.

Council’s Administrator, Mr Ian Reynolds, said the end of industrial action would come as a relief to residents

“I am pleased for residents this strike is finally over and they now have surety their bin will be picked up,” Mr Reynolds said.

“Council’s role here has always been to ensure we have a reliable and efficient waste and recycling service for our 331,000 residents and that will not change.

“My door is always open to those willing to deliver that for our community.”

Residents should leave their bin out on the kerb until it is collected by Remondis drivers.

Council has opened its waste management facilities at Buttonderry, Woy and Woy and Kincumber for residents wishing to dispose of their red lid bin waste sooner for free until the end of the week (Friday).
