    Pensioner Pre-Cyclone Clean Up

    As part of the annual pre-cyclone clean up, residents who receive an age or disability pension, and are in a kerbside collection area, can register with Tablelands Regional Council (TRC) for a free waste collection service.

    ‘Now is the time to prepare your yard for cyclone season by cutting back trees, shrubs and bushes,’ said Local Disaster Management Group Chair Councillor Bernie Wilce.

    ‘We will assist eligible age and disability pensioners by removing waste that is hazardous during storms and cyclones — this includes green waste, iron and general yard debris,’ said Councillor Wilce.

    White goods, furniture, household rubbish, car bodies and tyres can be dropped off at TRC transfer stations (fees may apply).

    Eligible residents can register for the collection at trc.qld.gov.au/cyclone-cleanup or 1300 362 242 before 5pm Friday 27 October. Collections will begin in early November.
