Get Ready - Storm Season Clean Up
During the entire month of October 2020, Council is offering free disposal of unused and unwanted outdoor items to help residents clean up before storm season.
A list of items that can be disposed of for free at our waste facilities during Get Ready Month is available below.
We want people to get rid of damaged or unused play equipment, outdoor furniture, barbeques, old sheets of corrugated iron and trim branches from around their homes. These items can become airborne in a storm or cyclone and damage houses or injure people.
We will not accept tyres, mattresses, fridges, freezers and air conditioners free of charge during October, as this is not what the storm clean up campaign was designed to encourage.
ITEMS ACCEPTED DURING GET READY MONTH
More information about preparing for natural disasters can be found on the Queensland State Government website here.
Green waste and other recyclable items can be disposed of for free anytime. As long as these items are sorted before arrival and can be put into the correct collection bins at the transfer stations and landfills, there is no charge.
For more information on sorting your load head to the Reuse and Recycling page.
