The popular Tip Shop at Gregadoo Waste Management Centre (GWMC) will be back to business this weekend.

The Tip Shop reopens Saturday 27 June after the easing of pandemic restrictions however Wagga Wagga City Council urges shoppers to ensure they maintain social distancing and proper hygiene in line with Public Health Orders (PHO).

GWMC Manager Geoff Pym said hand sanitising stations are available and their use will be encouraged.

“We’re asking visitors to be mindful of others to ensure the health and safety of everyone attending the Tip Shop,” Mr Pym said.

“We have a plan of action in place for the reopening and we ask that people are patient and understand we will be operating under different conditions.

“Most people would be aware there are changes required in these times to adhere to the PHO as facilities start to reopen – we thank the community for their understanding.”

The Tip Shop’s operating days have changed, with the shop now open Saturday, Sunday and Monday each week.

“We’ve now made Saturday our first day of trading, rather than Friday,” Mr Pym said.

“This gives everyone an equal opportunity to come out and see what they can reuse, recycle and repurpose.

“We’re looking forward to reopening, as we’ve got a lot of quality materials looking for a new life.”
