As part of preparing for the storm and cyclone season Council encourages residents to clean up around their yards and take items to any landfill sites or transfer station free of charge.
The Get Ready - storm season clean-up will be held on on Saturday, November 25 and Sunday, November 26, 2017.
Council will waive waste disposal charges for all domestic general waste including tyres, mattresses, refrigerators and air conditioning units (gassed or de-gassed).
Fees and charges will still to apply for commercial waste and regulated wastes such as materials containing asbestos.
Council encourages people to sort their load before they head to a waste facility.
People visiting the waste facilities in the lead up will also be given information on how to sort loads into reusable, recyclable and rubbish.
Green waste and other recyclable items can be disposed of for free any time. As long as the items can be sorted and can be put into the correct collection bins at the transfer stations and landfills there is no charge.
