WOLLONGONG will celebrate World Environment Day today (June 5), the day local analogue television switches to digital, with a free pick-up service for old sets.
Make the switch to being waste wise – recycle your unwanted TV’s or computers. Contact Wollongong City Council to book your On-Call Household Cleanup Service. Each household is entitled to two clean up services each financial year.
Council’s Manager Environmental Strategy and Planning Renee Campbell said the community is able to choose when to have items such as the old analogue television collected. And they arrange with Council to have these picked up on the usual normal bin collection day.
“The on-call cleanup can be booked online and all televisions, computers and e-waste can be recycled as part of this service.”
Each household in the city is entitled to two cleanup services (for each full Domestic Waste Management Charge Levied on a property) each financial year. This service is part of the Domestic Waste Management Charge on your rates. No extra charges apply.
For more information you can visit Council’s website or call Council’s Customer Service Centre on (02) 4227 7111.
