Don’t make non-essential trips to Council’s tips

Noosa residents are advised not to make non-essential trips to Council’s waste facilities during the current COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

In line with Federal Government requirements, doing a run to the tip to dispose of household or backyard rubbish is not considered essential travel.

Residents should not make non-essential trips to the tip during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

Residents should only use the waste facilities to dispose of food waste and/or waste that may present a public health or safety risk if it can’t be collected during the weekly pick-up.

Only waste from delivery of essential services or businesses should be transported to the waste sites at Doonan, Cooroy and Pomona during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Council is currently maintaining all of its usual waste collection services for all customers – residential and commercial.

Should residents continue to make non-essential tip visits, Council may be required to implement much tougher restrictions and controls to ensure residents comply with State and Federal Government imposed restrictions on public gatherings.

Council reminds those who must make an essential trip to the tip, that only cashless payments such as tap-and-go payments and debit cards will be accepted.

Reduced cash handling will help ensure the health and safety of our customers and staff during the Coronavirus pandemic.
