Save weekly bin pickups in Lake Macquarie!
Lake Macquarie Council have announced that, from 30 July 2018, they will stop picking up our general waste bin on a weekly basis.
This decision is to the detriment of families who utilise sanitary devices (nappies etc.), residents who have medical needs, residents with large families, and some members of our disabled community (as referenced in Councils own reports!).
Taking away weekly bin pickups will lead to smelly bins (think of nappies and prawns!), overflowing bins, and rubbish being dumped in our parks and waterways.
Council should be recognising and supporting the needs of our community, particularly those who are most vulnerable. Lake Macquarie Council should not be removing services, and penalising those need services the most.
Sign our petition, and help us let Lake Macquarie Council know that they must reverse this terrible decision!
