Dump free in storm’s wake

The Chronicle - - ON THE MAP NEWS -

SOM­ER­SET: Res­i­dents clean­ing up af­ter re­cent storms can dump green waste at two Som­er­set Re­gional Coun­cil tips for free un­til Sun­day.

Tip­ping fees for storm green waste or storm dam­aged ma­te­rial have been re­moved at the Esk and Coominya fa­cil­i­ties to help res­i­dents.

Mayor Graeme Lehmann said coun­cil crews and con­trac­tors worked quickly to en­sure pub­lic ar­eas and roads were safe.

“Som­er­set SES vol­un­teer crews are also as­sist­ing prop­erty own­ers where they can, par­tic­u­larly where home own­ers have suf­fered build­ing dam­age and where res­i­dents’ drive­ways are blocked,” he said.

The free dump­ing pe­riod ends at close of busi­ness on Sun­day, and proof of res­i­dency is re­quired.
