Debris cleaned in most areas
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.
