Rural residents can expect to find an annual household waste and recycling calendar in their mailboxes this week, as part of Council’s waste and recycling program Revolution Ararat.
The ‘2023 Rural Zone Kerbside Collection Calendar’ comes in the form of a handy magnet, which will help residents keep track of their collection service. The calendar is conveniently sized to stick on your fridge and features those all-important collections days for red, yellow, green and purple-lid bins.
Ararat Rural City Council CEO Dr Tim Harrison said council staff have put a lot of effort working out the best collection routes and organised printing and mailing with the team at the Ararat Post Office.
“Council is really pleased to see the community support the expanded recycling systems – we understand this has been a big change for our residents and have been refining the process as we go, while providing ongoing support through council to make this transition as smooth as possible,” he said.
