Bulka bags ready to be collected; further Ausgrid outages 


9 November 2023


Fine fuel collection update from the RFS – bulka bags have arrived

Bulka bags are now ready for collection from the small shed at the front of the Fire Station.

Please respect the fact that there is only 1 bag available for each household. If you take more than 1 bag one of your fellow residents will miss out. That’s not OK.

Remember: Fill your bag with fine fuels. These have a diameter thinner than your little finger. Place the bag on the side of the road before 7am 27 November for collection. Take care not to block passage of large vehicles and emergency vehicles.
