Outdoor facilities  

In response to the NSW Government amending health orders, the following outdoor facilities are open:


Our waste contractors URM, amongst others, have been required to meet their obligations towards implementing mitigation measures to reduce the risks of COVID-19 to their employees which have meant earlier start times than 6am. As restrictions ease we’re working with our contractor to return to normal start times as soon as possible while continuing to ensure the safety of staff and the community.

All street litter bins will continue to be collected and maintained as normal.


Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre is open. Please check their website for more details. 


Increased cleansing of public spaces will continue.


All Childcare Centres and Family Day Care centres remain open and operating normal days and hours.

Our staff and children are following recommended hygiene procedures including sneezing and coughing etiquette and handwashing practices. We are intentionally teaching and actively promoting correct hygiene practices at every opportunity with the children.

We have increased the cleaning regimes within our services and will be removing sensory play experiences such as playdough to further reduce risks.

Our services have adopted social distancing measures within the community including cancelling excursions, travel, and some events such as incursions.

Vacation Care will go ahead.
