Parkes and Peak Hill Residential properties will continue to receive their normal waste collection service from JR Richards, noting that this week is the yellow and green bin collection.

As a result of the current lockdown, Parkes and Peak Hill Waste Facilities will be closed to the general public, but open for receival of commercial construction and demolition waste, health and medical, aged care, hotel, and other commercial and industrial waste at normal operating hours.

There is no definitive or formal direction from NSW Health or the Police on whether taking domestic waste to the tip is a valid reason to leave home. We can only assume the Police will assess this on a case-by-case basis. Consequently, the tips will remain closed for those residents that receive a roadside pick-up service.

For those outside the roadside pickup areas in the 2870 and 2869 postcodes, appointments can be made through the Planning & Environment Department on 6861 2373, to deliver your waste to the tip.

When booking please provide your name, address, nominated vehicle registration and contact phone number. A time will be allocated for you to attend the Parkes Tip this week on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday or the Peak Hill tip on Thursday or Sunday. This will be done in half hourly intervals to allow non-contact drop off and exit.

There will be a requirement for prompt adherence to your allocated time - or entry cannot be permitted. Cash will not be accepted.
