Council’s festive season operating hours

The festive season is upon us, representing an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, take time off work and relax.

Wyndham City would like to advise residents that there will be some changes to Council operating hours and services over the Christmas and New Year period, which you can read about below.

Wyndham Mayor Cr Josh Gilligan wished all residents a happy festive period.

“I wish everyone a terrific Christmas, New Year and whatever other festivities you commemorate,” Cr Gilligan said.

“As we gather with loved ones and celebrate the year that has been, remember to look out for one another.”

“In particular, check in on people who may be experiencing hardship and embrace the community spirit that makes Wyndham such a great place to live.”

“I hope you all enjoy a well-earned break.”

Collections scheduled for those days will take place a day later than usual, with collections for the following days also pushed back by a day.
