Do the right thing, put it in the bin
  • Monday 27 February 2012

As the clean up continues from the weekend’s storm and flood damage, Sunshine Coast Council is urging locals to do the right thing when disposing of waste.

Local Disaster Coordinator Alan Rogers said skip bins were located outside the Majestic Theatre in Factory Street and Rifle Road in Pomona while additional bins were stationed in Daintree Way, Tewantin.

"Council has delivered skip bins to the hardest hit areas to help residents start to clean up and dispose of debris and flood damaged items," he said.

"While it’s a difficult time for many flood affected residents, we urge everyone who’s cleaning up to please do the right thing and put their waste in the appropriate places."

Mr Rogers said could also dispose of any storm generated green waste and debris free of charge at the Pomona and the Cooroy Transfer station, which is now open again.

"The Pomona transfer station is located on the corner of Louis Bazzo Drive and Pomona Kin Kin Road in Pomona and the Cooroy Transfer Station is located on Mary River Road," he said.

"Both stations are currently operating on extended opening hours from 8am to 5pm."

Council’s website and Facebook site is being updated regularly with information about road closures. You can also follow council on Twitter at @CouncilSCC for updates.
