The majority of Council's services and facilities will maintain normal operations, though some of our services and programs may be impacted.
In line with the Public Health Order, we ask that all members of the public who visit a Council facility wear a mask.
Social distancing and hygiene measures are in place, and QR code registration is required upon entering all Council facilities. Hand sanitiser is available on entry, and each facility will be subject to a maximum capacity dependant on the size of the facility and in accordance with the NSW Government's social distancing guidelines.
All transactions will remain cashless.
If you feel unwell, have been in Greater Sydney since 21 June or a hotspot identified by NSW Health, have been tested for COVID-19 and are awaiting results or have been in contact with a confirmed case of Coronavirus (COVID-19), please do not attend any Council site or facility. Council can be contacted via live chat, phone on 02 4934 9700 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

There are no changes to our residential waste services including kerbside collection and the operation of Mount Vincent Road Waste Management Centre. In addition, all street litter bins will continue to be collected and maintained as normal.
Mount Vincent Waste Management Centre no longer accepts cash payments. This will minimise hand to hand contact and is for the safety of our people and the community.
The Waste Management Centre is open 8.15am to 4.00pm every day for commercial waste and for Maitland City Council residents only, with proof of residential address required for entry.
In addition, our Community Recycling Centre (CRC) located within the facility will only now accept steel, vegetation, timber, tyres and e-waste to protect our people and the community. Further information on what is no longer accepted at the CRC can be found on Council's website.
