  • Wednesday 29 February 2012

The rain has eased but the mess remains for many storm-affected communities on the Sunshine Coast.

Council continues to assist the clean up, placing skip bins in the following public locations for residents to dispose of flood-damaged items:

  • Rifle Street, Pomona
  • Reserve Street, Pomona
  • Memorial Avenue, Pomona
  • School Street, Pomona
  • Factory Street, Pomona
  • Hill Street, Pomona
  • Maple Street, Cooroy
  • Mary River Road, Cooroy
  • Near the Cooroy Post Office
  • Lake Entrance Blvd, Noosaville
  • Daintree Way, Tewantin
  • Homestead Lane, Tewantin

Local Disaster Coordinator Alan Rogers said the bins would remain in place for the next few days.

"These skip bins were placed over the weekend and are there to help locals dispose of items in and around their homes that were damaged by flood water," he said.

Mr Rogers said council had also extended its kerbside collection of green waste in storm-affected areas until the end of the week.

"Crews will continue to collect storm debris that is placed on the nature strip of residences in and around the Pomona and Cooroy townships until Friday," he said.

"Residents can also transport any storm-generated green waste to the Pomona and Cooroy Waste Transfer stations and dispose of it free of charge.

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

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