Please be patient at recycling centre this weekend

Lismore City Council is reminding people that there may be delays at the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre and is asking people to be patient.

The Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre is open again for general waste, recycling and green waste disposal following the recent fire.

The Lismore Revolve Shop and the Return and Earn bulk collection centre remain closed at this stage and Council will advise the community when a reopening date for these services has been scheduled.

Council’s Acting Executive Director of Infrastructure Services Peter Jeuken urged people to be patient.

“We are expecting longer than usual wait times, so please be aware of this if you plan to visit the facility this weekend (August 31 2019, September 1 2019),” Peter said.

“Our staff have done an amazing job following the fire to get the facility back open and operational. We ask that people be respectful and patient as our staged reopening takes place.”

The Return and Earn container deposit machines at Goonellabah Shopping Centre and Brewster Street in Lismore are still operational to dispose of recyclable containers, and the Brewster Street Drop-off Centre and the Nimbin Transfer Station also remain open.
