Christmas and New Year holidays 2014/15

Essential City of Sydney services such as waste and recycling collections will continue without interruption over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.

Meals on Wheels will be open and operating as usual except Christmas Day (25 December), Boxing Day (26 December) and New Year's Day (1 January). The Community Transport service will be closed Christmas Day (25 December), Boxing Day (26 December) and New Year's Day (1 January) and will operate a limited service from 29-31 December.

You can contact the City 24 hours a day on 02 9265 9333 or email council@cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au, including public holidays.

Most other City services and programs, listed below, will operate as usual up until 24 December, when some centres and programs will close earlier to allow staff to join their families and friends on Christmas Eve. Most of these services and programs will resume usual opening hours on 2 January, unless otherwise indicated in the tables below.

Swimming pools across the local area will be closed on Christmas Day but will be open on Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
