Pensioner Garden Waste Removal Service
Posted on 02 Nov, 2021
It’s time to prune the trees and trim the hedge because Council’s Pensioner Garden Waste Removal Service is right around the corner!
If you are an aged pensioner and have green waste and clippings to remove from your yard, Council offers this FREE collection service for senior residents.
Syd Kinsman, 100, is an avid gardener and has used the service for years.
He said the pick-up days make it much easier for him to maintain his large garden and that anyone who’s eligible should apply.
“I’m out gardening every day – it’s my exercise,” he said. “I’m walking and bending and my muscles are working all the time.”
“In the lead up to the Council pick-up I can do the extras and give everything a good prune.
“It’s really good to have the Council bring their big truck, you can get your yard tidied in no time.”
The next pick-up will occur from Tuesday 23 November – Thursday 25 November.
To register for the service simply fill in the form on our website www.alicesprings.nt.gov.au and return it to Council by November 19. Forms can also be found in November’s edition of Council Connects.
