Line up to clean up

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

MANY lo­cals from across the re­gion made the most of the coun­cil’s free dump­ing ser­vice last week­end.

The free refuse sites over the week­end were an in­cen­tive to clean up be­fore storm sea­son hits.

From early morn­ing and be­fore the gates opened, cars lined up ready to un­load.

Gin Gin res­i­dent Dean Han­ra­han joined the long line at Tir­roan to dump his rub­bish.

“I was sur­prised to see so many peo­ple here,” Mr Han­ra­han said.

But the hot day did not flare up anger as many driv­ers sat in their air-con­di­tioned cars.

“I was only wait­ing about 10 min­utes to get in, it wasn’t too bad,” he said.

The lo­cal sug­gested the coun­cil open the free ser­vice more of­ten to en­cour­age oth­ers to clean up.

“I am get­ting storm ready at home and clean­ing up the property,” he said.

In re­cent weeks, mil­lions of dol­lars in storm dam­age has been recorded in the re­gion.

Mr Han­ra­han said the re­cent storms in the area were rea­son enough to tidy up his property.
