Free green waste disposal for the shire
IT IS that time again, time to clean and clear your yards with the wet season approaching, without the worry of waste disposal charges.
Take advantage of free green waste disposal at Cairns Regional Council’s transfer stations.
Domestic garden clippings, palm fronds and tree cuttings can be dropped at transfer stations at no charge from November 2 to 10.
‘‘If you have trees or branches that might become a safety hazard in strong winds or heavy rain now is the time to take action,’’ mayor Bob Manning said. You can drop off your waste to Killaloe Transfer Station (Mon to Sat 8am - 5.15 pm, Sun 9am - 5.15pm) or Newell Beach Transfer Station (Mon and Fri 7am 11.45am, Wed noon 5.45pm, Sat 7am - 6pm).
Collected green waste will be mulched and offered back to residents at no cost at a later date.
