Hol­i­day Care for Pets

If you’re head­ing off for hol­i­days, it’s im­por­tant to have your pets cared for and reg­u­larly checked to en­sure they aren’t suf­fer­ing, wan­der­ing or caus­ing a nui­sance while you’re away.

Swimwear for Pools

There’s noth­ing bet­ter than a dip in the pool to cool off on the hot days. A friendly re­minder when at­tend­ing our re­gion’s pools you must wear ap­pro­pri­ate swimwear. This in­cludes swimwear made from ly­cra or ny­lon such as board shorts, swim shorts, biki­nis and full swim suits. If you re­quire fur­ther sun pro­tec­tion, swim­ming rash shirts may also be used. Also don’t for­get that you must bring a towel. For more in­for­ma­tion on our swimwear pol­icy visit www.tr.qld.gov.au/ poolpoli­cies

Water Re­stric­tions

Water re­stric­tion lev­els vary de­pend­ing on where you live. As a re­gion we’re aim­ing to re­duce our water con­sump­tion to 200 litres/per­son/day. Call us or visit www. tr.qld.gov.au/wa­ter­restric­tions­by­town for more de­tails.

When Trucks are About, Keep a Look Out

In courts and dead ends, our waste trucks have to turn around and re­verse, and the driv­ers can’t see all around them at the one time. Please be sure to su­per­vise your chil­dren, par­tic­u­larly on bin col­lec­tion days. It’s com­mon for kids to ride bikes, skate­boards and play games in the street. Re­mem­ber that our trucks are big and kids are small, so please keep a safe dis­tance from our ve­hi­cles.
