Penrith’s essential waste services continue

Penrith’s essential waste services continue

Tuesday, 20 July 2021

During this extended lockdown period, bin collections for households in the Penrith Local Government Area will continue as an essential service.

Penrith City Council’s waste contractors have made rostering adjustments to reduce the potential impacts of COVID-19 and to align with Public Health Orders. These adjustments may result in residents’ bins being collected earlier or later than usual.

Despite the changes to the time that bins may be collected during the day, bin collections will remain on normal collection days.

Council encourages residents to continue to place their bins at the kerbside the evening prior to their scheduled collection day and leave them out until they have been emptied.

For bin collection schedules, please download the free Penrith Waste Champion App from the Apple Store or Play Store. Council provides updates as needed through the App.

To access additional waste services online, visit The Waste Spot, Council’s online destination for all residents’ waste-related requests including bulky waste pick-ups, questions, suggestions, and compliments!

If you have a question about bins, The Waste Spot is the best way to get in touch with Council. Raise a request online at a time that’s convenient by heading to The Waste Spot at
