Bin collection changes

There will be some changes to waste and recyclables collection services across the Mackay region commencing Monday, October 24.

While several routes will remain unchanged, residents and businesses that will be directly affected will be notified in writing.

Council will also be applying information stickers to wheelie bin lids one week before the changes come into effect.

All residents are reminded to have bins placed for servicing prior to 6.00am as truck collection timings during the day will alter.
