Temporary change to bin collection service for GC 600 race precinct
From Sunday 18 October to Sunday 25 October, the City bulk bin collections in the Gold Coast 600 race precinct will commence earlier than usual (at 5am) due to access issues and to avoid busy traffic periods.
Properties affected will need to place their bins in position the night before their normal scheduled service day. Affected properties include apartments with City bulk bin waste and recycling services within the Gold Coast 600 race precinct in Surfers Paradise, Main Beach and Paradise Waters.
