Toowoomba Regional Council has increased the operating hours at the Yarraman Waste Management Facility after receiving feedback from the community.

The decision to was made at the Council meeting earlier this week.

Portfolio holder Cr Bill Cahill said the decision was a sign Council had listened to the concerns of the community.

“We understand the community wants a value-for-money model and last year in October we adopted a Waste Infrastructure Plan (WIP) which focused on balancing costs across the region,” he said.

“The WIP came into effect on July 1 this year with revised hours introduced at sites where the base cost per transaction was high.”

The hours at some facilities were increased, but the opening hours at Yarraman and three other sites were reduced.

“We received feedback from the community… and have made the decision today to revise the hours for these four facilities,” Cr Cahill said.

“These changes will provide consistency across all our facilities and we believe they better align with community expectations.”

The new operating hours for Yarraman are:

  • Monday: 1:00pm-5:00pm
  • Wednesday: 8:00am-noon
  • Friday: 1:00pm-5:00pm
  • Saturday: 10:00am-3:00pm
  • Sunday: 10:00am-3:00pm

The changes are expected to come into effect on October 1.
