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

  • Thursday 24 December – Open
  • Friday 25 December (Christmas Day) Closed
  • Saturday 26 December (Boxing Day) – Open
  • Sunday 27 December – Open

  • Thursday 31 December – Open
  • Friday 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.

On Thursday 24 December the facility will operate with minimal staff from 12 noon onwards.  The Reviva Centre will also close from Christmas eve and reopen as per normal operating hours from 2 January 2021.

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.

Council’s Manager of Business Services, Neil Townsend said kerbside collection services will continue 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, 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.”

Council will also undertake weekly collections of yellow recycling waste bins from 28 December through until 22 January 2021 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.

The staff of Council’s Resource Recovery Centre wish all residents a very Merry Christmas and a waste-free new year.
