Free green waste dis­posal for the shire

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
