MILDURA Council is facing more backlash over reduced opening hours at the Mildura Landfill, with local excavator owners trashing a move they say has affected their busi­nesses and compromised the area’s safety.

Mildura Bobcats owner Gavin Chiswell and Sunnycat Bobcat owner Mark Ferguson have now called for talks with the council about a return to the previous hours. 

The council changed the landfill’s opening hours in August 2017 to 8am (previously 7am) to 4pm (previously 4.45pm) on weekdays and 9am (previously 8am) on weekends and public holidays as part of a 12-month trial.
