Pensioner Pre-Cyclone Clean Up

As part of the annual pre-cyclone clean up, residents who receive an age or disability pension, and are in a kerbside collection area, can register with Tablelands Regional Council for a free waste collection service.

‘Now is the best time to prepare your yard for cyclone season by cutting back trees, shrubs and bushes,’ said Local Disaster Management Group Chair Councillor Bernie Wilce.

‘We’ll assist eligible age and disability pensioners by removing waste that is hazardous during storms and cyclones.

‘Hazardous waste includes green waste, iron and general yard debris.

‘You can drop white goods, furniture, household rubbish, car bodies and tyres at our transfer stations (fees may apply),’ said Councillor Wilce.

Eligible residents can register for the collection at or 1300 362 242 before 5pm Friday 21 October.

Collections will begin on Monday 7 November.
