Council change collection day

THE POPULATION explosion in Ipswich's eastern suburbs has forced the Ipswich City Council to change the new waste and recycling collection days from July 4.

The suburbs most likely to be affected are Blacksoil, Ironbark, Muirlea, Pine Mountain, Basin Pocket, East Ipswich, Newtown, Ipswich, West Ipswich, Churchill, Eastern Heights, Woolshed, Bundamba, Ebbw Vale, New Chum, Riverview and Springfield.

Councillor Trevor Nardi, city works committee chairperson, said “domestic refuse and recycling service demands have increased” and “Ipswich Waste Services plans to implement changes to some collection days and recycling collection weeks for about 19,000 residents.”

Cr Nardi said that 6862 households would have a change to collection day and no change to recycling collection, 4870 would have a change to both and 6999 would have no change to collection day but would have a change to their recycling week.

“Before July 4 we'll have notification out to residents and they will be well aware of the changes in advance,” he said.
