So we will no longer provide drop off service until further notice after 4 weeks. We still open for self service only from 6am to midnight daily. Please bring your own coins or notes when you come to do your washing, as [our] eftpos machine is not available during these time. Sorry for the inconvenience. Please stay safe. From EZ Wash Laundromat."
I also got a call from someone at Phil Twyford's office this morning. 😃 He told me ATMs would remain open too, so that's another bit of good news. 😃

Will rubbish collection be considered an essential industry? If yes then we should expect to receive weekly collection but I haven't been able to confirm this viewing the AK Council web site. Would anyone know what is planned for rubbish & recycle collections?
