Kar­ratha cleans up for cy­clone sea­son

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle -

Cy­clone clean-ups are un­der way in the City of Kar­ratha.

To­day is the last day for Mil­lars Well and Pegs Creek res­i­dents to place their rub­bish on the road verge ahead of Baynton and Nickol on Oc­to­ber 30 and Roe­bourne, Wick­ham and Point Sam­son on Novem­ber 6. Dampier, Kar­ratha Air­port, Bul­garra and the City Cen­tre were ear­lier in the month.

Res­i­dents are re­minded that tree lop­pings and me­tal items are to be stacked sep­a­rately to other rub­bish, and to each other, and all piles should be kept tidy and clear of fences, wa­ter me­ters, power poles, ve­hi­cles, let­ter boxes, Tel­stra pits, driveways and gar­dens.

Any­thing for col­lec­tion must be cut into pieces shorter than 2.5m in length and any items that do not meet th­ese cri­te­ria will not be re­moved.

Re­mem­ber to iden­tify items that are to re­main on the verge as “DO NOT RE­MOVE”.

Lit­ter­ing fines may be im­posed for ma­te­rial that cre­ates a lit­ter prob­lem such as loose pa­per, plas­tic bags, card­board food con­tain­ers, cloth­ing etc.

The fol­low­ing items will not be re­moved by the City of Kar­ratha — air-con­di­tion­ers, bat­ter­ies, bricks, build­ing ma­te­ri­als, chem­i­cals, car bod­ies, con­crete, dirt/rub­ble/gravel, fire ex­tin­guish­ers, food oils, flares, freez­ers, fridges, fuel, gas bot­tles, glass, liq­uids, mi­crowave ovens, paints, pes­ti­cides and tyres.

With clean-up crews work­ing on lo­cal roads through­out this time, please be pa­tient and pre­pare to stop or slow when ap­proach­ing a work area.

If you need any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, call the City of Kar­ratha cus­tomer ser­vice team on 9186 8555 or visit www.kar­ratha.wa.gov.au.
