Daroobalgie Tip Going Cashless: From 1 September 2020 the Forbes Shire Council Daroobalgie Landfill site will only accept card payments. Due to the continued COVID-19 situation, Council is moving to a card only system for the Daroobalgie Landfill site and no cash payments will be accepted after 1 September.
Forbes Shire Council General Manager Steve Loane is urging residents to pay by card in order to help the fight against COVID-19. Steve went on to remind residents that Daroobalgie is a business that takes it’s responsibility to keep its employees, and the community, safe. By ceasing the handling of cash, Daroobalgie will keep the transfer of disease and germs at a minimum.
“The inconvenience is highly regrettable but our community safety is the key priority and the decision has been made to ensure the ongoing health and safety of all persons involved,” Steve said.
The Daroobalgie Waste Facility is operational seven days a week between the hours of 8.30am – 5pm. Visa or Mastercard and EFTPOS or Tap-and-Go will be accepted.
The Forbes Shire Council encourages all members of the community to dispose of their waste correctly and to only send waste to landfill that cannot be recycled or recovered any other way. For more information please contact Forbes Shire Council or go to www.forbes.nsw.gov.au.
