’Un­lim­ited’ green waste

The Weekend Post - - News -

CAS­SOWARY Coast Re­gional Coun­cil is ac­cept­ing un­lim­ited green waste as it urges res­i­dents to get ready in the lead-up to storm sea­son.

As part of the Cas­sowary Coast Clean Up ini­tia­tive, self­haul­ing res­i­dents can dump green waste free of charge at most CCRC trans­fer sta­tions.

Mayor John Kre­mas­tos said res­i­dents should be look­ing to see what they need to do around their homes and yards to be pre­pared.

“The an­nual storm sea­son has al­ready be­gun,” he said.

“This means get­ting out in the yard and cut­ting back trees, over­hang­ing branches, shrubs and bushes, clean­ing out your gut­ters, and mak­ing sure you have cleaned up any­thing that could count as de­bris or loose ma­te­ri­als.”

The Cas­sowary Coast Clean Up runs un­til De­cem­ber 17.
