Get cyclone ready
RESIDENTS who live in a kerbside collection area and who receive the aged or disability pension can register with Tablelands Regional Council to get waste removed from their property in readiness for cyclone season.
“Now is the best time to prepare your yard for cyclone season by cutting back trees, shrubs and bushes,” Local Disaster Management Group chair Cr Bernie Wilce said.
“We’ll assist eligible age and disability pensioners by removing waste that is hazardous during storms and cyclones.
Hazardous waste includes green waste, iron and general yard debris.
Eligible residents can register for the collection at www.trc.qld.gov.au/cyclone-cleanup or 1300 362 242 before 5pm on Friday 21 October. Collections will begin on Monday 7 November.
