Storm debris in the region

Feb 15, 2018 | Front Page Feature, News

Recent storms throughout our region have resulted in an amount of tree debris littering our towns.

North Burnett Regional Council Acting Mayor, Cr Faye Whelan, advises that Council crews have been working to clean-up roads and public places.

“Residents who have tree and green waste debris following storms and destructive winds are requested to be patient and take waste to their local Waste Management Facility during normal operating hours.  Schools and other community organisations may contact Council to arrange opening of the landfill by appointment if absolutely necessary for safety reasons,” Cr Whelan said.

While Council endeavours to assist community members wherever possible, residents wanting trees or dead animals removed from their property, or other immediate work done on their property will need to request a ‘private works’ job through Council.  Where compassionate or other grounds may exist, Council may consider waiving the cost upon receiving a written request explaining the extenuating circumstances.

Council’s Waste Management Facility Hours of Operation can be found here.

Should you have any enquiries please call Council’s Environmental Health staff on 1300 696 272 (1300 MY NBRC).
