The flood clean up begins
  • Saturday 25 February 2012

Sunshine Coast Council is making it easier for residents to start cleaning up after the recent storm and flood damage.

Local Disaster Coordinator Andrew Ryan said council has delivered skip bins to the worst affected areas to help residents begin their clean up.

“Skip bins are located outside the Majestic Theatre in Factory Street and Rifle Road in Pomona and additional bins placed in Daintree Way, Tewantin for residents to dispose of flood damaged items,” he said.

“We encourage neighbours to lend a helping hand to those who need assistance to lift their damaged goods into the skip bins.

“I would however urge residents to check their insurance policies prior to disposing of any damaged goods,” he said.

Mr Ryan said the council has also extended the operating hours of the Pomona Transfer Station to assist residents in disposing of their green waste for free.”

The transfer station will be open from Sunday through to Tuesday from 8am to 5pm.

The Pomona Transfer Station is located on the corner of Louis Bazzo Drive and Pomona Kin Kin Road, Pomona.

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.
