Randwick City Council’s Customer Service Centre and popular Community Nursery in Kingsford will reopen to the public from Tuesday 9 June 2020.
Council’s Recycling Centre at Matraville will also recommence Saturday openings from 13 June.
Randwick Mayor Danny Said welcomed the openings and encouraged people to continue practising caution and social distancing.
“It’s great to be opening more of our facilities and slowly getting back closer to a feeling of normality,” Randwick Mayor Danny Said commented. “But we still need to be cautious and practice social distancing. While our Customer Service Centre is reopening, you can access most of our services and transactions on our website and I’d encourage people to consider using our online services where possible.”
