The Rural City of Murray Bridge (RCMB) have ensured that kerbside waste collection will remain unaffected throughout lockdown.

It is classified as one of the essential services provided by council during lockdown.

But several community members have stated that they have faced difficulties with their rubbish pickup.

"My bin is still sitting out the front, full and awaiting emptying on Thursday," a community member posted on Facebook.

"(Rubbish collection) may be unaffected by COVID lockdown, but residents on Hill Street/Weigall Ave are still affected by the green bin not being picked up on alternate Thursday's. Going on for eight weeks now," one Murraylands community member said.

A RCMB spokesperson said that communication is the key in getting this problem solved.

"They can ring us here at council or they can contact Solo Resource Recovery," the spokesperson said.

"Bin services should be running as normal. If there are any problems, please contact council or Solo.

"If people do notice their bin hasn't been emptied on the day, it's best to get in contact as soon as possible for someone to return and pick it up."

A Solo Resource Recovery spokesperson echoed the council's message and gave a helpful tip to ensure rubbish is collected.

"If the bins are not collected, make sure to contact us and ensure your bins are out the night before collection," the spokesperson said.

"If there are any problems, please do contact us and we can help. All the information will be on the Rural City of Murray Bridge's Council website."

If you have any problems with your rubbish pick up, please contact Solo Resource Recovery on: 8295 5077.
