  1. A few weeks/months ago the public was told that adjustments (as per the amount of trucks burdening down the system) would be made.

    We would have heard in the public constantly that haulers etc were not getting paid.

    Everything has now gone silent. What is going on?

    For the first time (as far as I know) N.S.W.M.A. have put out a public notice that certain areas will be affected with regards to collecting their household garbage.

    What I found queer in this notice was that the public was advised to call the hotline number to report if their house-hold garbage was not collected and the authority would send out a private truck to collect.

    Shouldn’t the authority know the affected areas and adjust their schedule accordingly?
