While we love all the rain for our parks and gardens it is playing havoc on two areas of our operations – mowing of nature strips and household waste collections. The rain makes the nature strips unable to be mowed, and also boosts the rate in which the grass grows. We’re battling but we are a bit behind. Rain also impacts on safe working conditions for the refuse collections (not the garbage services) so, again, we might be running a little behind schedule. It is an inconvenience, and it detracts from normally good-looking streets, but bear with us as we catch up.
