A Message from Pittwater Council

Council is focused on supporting the community after the destructive storms that hit Pittwater last week. 

Pittwater was one of 12 other local government areas to be declared a natural disaster zone, after the recent storms.

Council’s disaster clean-up plan is in full operation, and we continue to work with State Emergency Services and contractors to clear large trees and vegetation debris as quickly as possible.

Spoiled food waste collection

A skip bin will be available, for Pittwater residents who have been without power, to dispose of spoiled food waste (only) at Beeby Reserve Car Park, Mona Vale until 5pm Friday 1 May.

Vegetation clean-up Council will be providing a vegetation clean-up service to deal with trees and vegetation debris from the storm.  Please leave vegetation that cannot fit in the lime lidded bin (lid must be closed) in manageable bundles on the kerbside. This collection may take some weeks and may involve a number of separate collections. Garbage services These will be running as normal. If trucks are unable to access your street for safety reasons, please leave your bin out and it will be collected at the first opportunity.
