Change start times Randwick Council's Waste Removal services can operate - Say No before 6

This petition made change with 34 supporters!


For me, this is simple - let the residents sleep. Why not perform waste services during the normal business hours while people are at work? If there has to be someone affected, let it be the transient workers not the permanent residents. #saynobeforesix

Every Monday on the Alison Road end of Doncaster Avenue (up to Anzac Parade) we have waste removal services operating before 6am. They are loud and obnoxious and are starting to become detrimental to me and my family's health. And it isn't one off, this happens for the next 40 minutes to an hour with obnoxious accelerating and braking picking up all the bins from neighbouring apartments. 

I have spoken to Randwick Council and their unsupportive response is as follows:

"The collection of the Garbage and Recycle bins on Doncaster Ave have been rescheduled to commence from 5am due to the construction of the light rail project on Anzac Pde and Alison Rd.

At the completion of this project service delivery for the Kensington precinct will be considered."

This is unreasonable! Prioritising the light rail over the health and well-being of residents. There is no need to punish residents and making them suffer with broken sleep for a state-owned privately-constructed infrastructure project.

I have been told that the traffic on Doncaster Avenue after 6am and throughout the day has had an affect on decision-making hence why essential services have to start before 6. I have been told that running at other times would not allow trucks to be run efficiently for the project. This is unacceptable justification and again prioritising project work over the health and well-being of local residents.

I have now been a resident for 2 years. I don't see any reason why the waste removal services cannot come after 6. 

As a resident, I have to keep noise down and power tools off till 7am so why can't they?

If you want peace and quiet while you sleep please sign the petition below.

  • Let the council know that YOU are affected.
  • Let the council make decisions with RESIDENTS in mind.
  • Make sure Randwick City Council knows that YOU are an important STAKEHOLDER. And that YOU have a VOICE!

Small steps will make a difference and your signature matters! Thank you.

I AM SIGNING THIS PETITION IN SUPPORT FOR CHANGING THE CONTRACTED HOURS  FOR WASTE REMOVAL SERVICES FOR RANDWICK COUNCIL TO START AFTER 6AM ON A WEEK DAY.
