Wingecarribee Shire Council wishes to advise that the Moss Vale Resource Recovery Centre will remain open over the holiday period only closing for the public holidays.

The Resource Recovery Centre’s Christmas operating days will be as follows:

  • Monday 23 December – Open
  • Tuesday 24 December – Open
  • Wednesday 25 December (Christmas Day) – Closed
  • Thursday 26 December (Boxing Day) – Closed
  • Friday 27 December – Open
  • Saturday 28 December- Open
  • Sunday 29 December – Open
  • Monday 30 December  – Open
  • Tuesday 31 January – Open
  • Wednesday 1 January (New Year’s Day) – Closed

Operating hours are 8.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Saturday and 8.00am to 1.00pm Sundays.  Customers visiting the RRC are reminded to arrive no later than 20 minutes prior to the close of gates to allow staff to safely secure the facility at the designated time.

The Reviva Centre however will be closed from 25 December and reopen as per normal operating hours from 2 January 2020.

Council’s Manager of Business Services, Neil Townsend said drivers would be collecting kerbside bins as per normal collections days.

“Staff and contractors will still be collecting kerbside bins on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day,” he said.

“However, to allow our staff to also enjoy Christmas Day and the other public holidays, our drivers will be leaving a little bit earlier than normal,” Mr Townsend said.

“We’re therefore asking residents who would normally have their bins collected on these days to ensure their bins are out on their kerbs from 11.00pm the evening before.”

“Collecting the bins earlier also allows our heavy vehicles to be off the streets on what is traditionally the busiest morning of the year,” he added.

Council will also undertake weekly collections of yellow recycling waste bins from 23 December through until 17 January 2020 to help residents cope with the extra recyclable waste generated over the holiday period.

Customers are reminded that the Resource Recovery Centre also accepts paper wrapping, cardboard and polystyrene packaging free of charge.

The Resource Recovery Centre is located at 177 Berrima Road, Moss Vale.
