Tap and go: tip is going cashless

Be prepared to tap and go, the tip is going cashless.

From September 1 the Forbes Shire Council Daroobalgie Landfill site will only accept card payments.

"Due to the continued COVID-19 situation, Council is moving to a card only system for the Daroobalgie Landfill site," Forbes Shire Council General Manager Steve Loane said.

"No cash payments will be accepted from 1 September."

Residents are being urged to pay by card to help in the fight against COVID-19

"As a business our primary responsibility is to keep our employees safe as well as the community," Mr Loane said.

"By moving to card only system we alleviate the handling of cash, which we all recognise as a potential medium for transferring disease and germs.

"The inconvenience is highly regretted but our community safety is the key priority and the decision has been made to ensure the ongoing health and safety of all persons involved."

The Daroobalgie Waste Facility is operational seven days a week between the hours of 8.30am - 5pm.

Visa or Mastercard and EFTPOS or Tap-and-Go will be accepted.

The Forbes Shire Council encourages all members of the community to dispose of their waste correctly and to only send waste to landfill that cannot be recycled or recovered any other way.
