Waste vouchers help lighten the load

Lismore City Council has increased the number of free waste vouchers available to residents for January and February to help the community dispose of extra waste generated over the summer holiday period.

“An extra 1000 vouchers are being made available for January and February that residents can apply for to help them get rid of any extra waste they accumulated over the Christmas and New Year period,” said Council’s Manager – Commercial Services (Resource Recovery) Dave Hanna.

“Once a voucher is issued, you have 30 days to take your waste to either the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre on Wyrallah Road, East Lismore or the Nimbin Transfer Station.

“We do ask residents to please sort as much of their waste as possible to allow us to recycle as many items as we can to keep them out of landfill.”
