Karratha cleans up for cyclone season
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.
