Lismore City Council has provided 1,000 extra ‘free waste vouchers’ to help residents dispose of excess waste generated over the Christmas and New Year period.
‘Council has an electronic waste voucher system where each property is allocated one waste voucher per year. To help dispose of extra waste generated over the holiday period, Council is issuing an extra 1000 vouchers over January and February Lismore City Council General Manager John Walker said.
The vouchers will be available throughout January and February and must be used within 30 days of issuing.
‘Once a voucher is issued, residents have 30 days to take their waste to either the Lismore Recycling & Recovery Centre on Wyrallah Road, East Lismore or the Nimbin Transfer Station,’ said Mr Walker.
‘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.’
