FREE green waste collections will be available this weekend at Wombarra.

Northern suburbs’ residents can drop off their green garden organic waste at Jim Allen Oval, Wombarra on Saturday January 18 from 7.30am to 11.30am.

The Oval is located off Monash St, Wombarra.

There will also be free collection points at Whytes Gully this Friday January 17 from 7.30am to 4.30pm and Saturday and Sunday January 18-19 from 8am to 4pm.

The Beaton Park waste collection on Saturday 18 January will be open from midday to 4pm. It will be held in the Snake Pit car park area with entry from Gipps St or Foley St, Gwynneville.

Wollongong City Council’s free collections in January have been successful so far with residents delivering approximately 100 tonnes of green waste to collection points in Helensburgh, Corrimal, Mt Kembla and Whytes Gully.

Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said now is a good time to clear your property and remove fallen leaves, twigs and debris.

“You can also help make your property safe by composting smaller leaves and branches,” he said.

Tips on preparing your home for bush fire are available on the RFS website.

Information on composting garden and kitchen organics at your place is on our website, see Sustainable Living.


YOU can also make a small donation towards the running of The Bulli & Clifton Times and/or the Looking Back websites through Paypal. If you would like to support my work, you can leave a small tip here of $2, or several small tips, just increase the amount as you like. Your generous patronage of my work and research, however small it appears to you, will greatly help me with my continuing costs.
