Hey Chinchilla! Did you forget about the recent change over for some households and their waste collection day? If your bin is usually serviced on a Friday, it now may be serviced on a Thursday. If this is you — don't worry! Simply leave your bins out today for collection. Still unsure? Head to the link below, or contact Council on 1300 268 624. ~ WDRC Comms Team
