Cope Street Garbage collection time

Dear Lane Cove Council, We, the undersigned residents of Cope and Best Streets, Lane Cove petition you, the council to bring the collection of waste in our street in to line with the rest of your own regulations on noise. It is not acceptable and is completely unreasonable that we should have to be repeatedly woken at hours as early as 5.30am, by the waste collection services that you have contracted, particularly when you quite clearly prohibit other noise before 7am. Our sleep patterns and therefore our lives are being disrupted by this, and it is not healthy. Please amend the contract and only permit the waste collection in our streets from 7am.
