Garbage Trucks to Boost Security For Newcastle Anzac Day Services

Newcastle Council will be implementing garbage trucks during Anzac Day commemorations next week as a security measure

The trucks will be used as barriers in several events on both Monday and Tuesday, following a directive by the state government to ‘beef up’ security during major events.

It comes as Newcastle Buses were used as barricades for the first time during Australia Day celebrations in Honeysuckle this year.

The move could affect local bin collection but residents have been told to put them out as normal.
