Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

COUN­CIL work­ers have cleaned green-waste de­bris i n a b o u t 7 0 p e r c e n t o f Townsville’s ur­ban ar­eas, with plans to tar­get re­main­ing out­ly­ing ru­ral ar­eas from Mon­day.

Cr Dale Last said the mam­moth Operati o n Rest o r e T o wn s v i l l e wa s f o r g i n g ahead de­spite this week’s rain.

‘‘ This has been a ter­rific ef­fort by the army of coun­cil work­ers and pri­vate con­trac­tors we have on the job and full credit to them,’’ he said. ‘‘ They have al­ready com­pleted about 70 per cent of house­holds with the re­main­der to be fi­nalised in the next few weeks.

‘‘ Res­i­dents in ar­eas yet to be vis­ited should have their green waste out on foot­paths by now and look out for a flyer in their letter box with in­for­ma­tion on when crews will be com­ing through.’’

Res­i­dents can ac­cess the mulch from var­i­ous sites across the city in­clud­ing Cutheringa Park, Heat­ley Park, Char­lotte Park, Gill Park, Jezzine Bar­racks, cor­ner of Dal­rym­ple Rd and Bam­ford Lane, Wagner St ( Innes Es­tate), Wood­land Park.
