Second and final clean-up operation for flood-hit areas
GLADSTONE Regional Council will engage contractors to finalise removal of waste from affected areas that were worst hit by the recent flooding.
Clean-up operations will be conducted in Lowmead, Baffle Creek, Oyster Creek and surrounds where residents are still removing damaged items and waste from homes.
Gladstone Mayor Gail Sellers said the clean-up would be the second such waste removal operation for several areas and was vital in helping flood-affected residents start the recovery process.
"Council engaged contractors to complete initial kerbside collections in all flood-affected areas with the exception of Boyne Valley where the Phoenix Group CQ completed the clean-up and Council extended the Nagoorin waste transfer station hours to assist," Cr Sellers said.
"This second and final visit to flood-affected areas is important to those residents who are still clearing damaged items and debris from their households, and I encourage people to use this free service before waste removal services return to their regular schedules on Monday."
