Christmas and New Year holidays 2013/14

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

The Homelessness Persons Information Centre will also continue operating, including public holidays.

Meals on Wheels and the Community Transport service will be open and operating as usual except Christmas Day (25 December), Boxing Day (26 December) and New Year's Day (1 January).

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

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.
