Grand Final Eve: bins collected ahead of big match

Hume City Council will collect rubbish bins on Grand Final Eve for every household that normally anticipates a collection on Fridays.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Adem Atmaca, today released details on the Council services which will operate on Friday 2 October 2015.

“We know that many families throw a party for the Grand Final, and Council will ensure that our garbage service continues as normal,” Cr Atmaca said.

“I’m sure the long weekend will be terrific, and particularly exciting for residents who have a team in the big match.

“While some Council services will operate on Grand Final Eve, many will naturally close for this inaugural public holiday.”

The following will continue as normal on Friday 2 October 2015:

• rubbish collection;
• waste centres in Bolinda Road, Campbellfield, and Riddell Road, Sunbury (8.00am-4.00pm);
• Broadmeadows Aquatic and Leisure Centre (8.00am-5.00pm);
• Craigieburn Leisure Centre (9.00am-5pm); and
• Sunbury Aquatic and Leisure Centre (9.00am- 5.00pm).

Council facilities that shall close for the public holiday on Friday 2 October 2015 are:

• childcare centres;
• maternal and child health centres;
• Hume Libraries’ branches;
• Hume Global Learning Centre – Broadmeadows and Hume Global Learning Centre – Craigieburn; and
• Hume customer service centres.

Hume City Council’s preschools will also be closed on Grand Final Eve, with the centres in recess due to the school holidays.

Cr Atmaca encouraged residents to spend time outdoors in Hume across the Grand Final weekend.

“If the weather is fine, people who have time off should consider a visit to a park in Hume,” he said.

“Spring is a great time to explore, and places that look fantastic include Jack Roper Reserve in Broadmeadows and Apex Park in Sunbury.

“Many of Hume’s parks now also offer outdoor exercise equipment so that residents can keep fit for free at a time that suits.

“I wish everyone a very happy Grand Final weekend, and may the best team win!”
