Residents are reminded they can still access free mulch from stockpiles in Cannonvale, as the clean-up continues after Tropical Cyclone Debbie.
Mayor Andrew Willcox is encouraging all residents to collect the free mulch while it is still available.
“The free mulch will help re-establish gardens after the damage caused by Cyclone Debbie,” he said.
“Council will keep the sites open for collection except on days where there is inclement weather and the mulch sites become too wet for vehicle access.”
Mulch is still available for collection by the public at the following sites in Cannonvale until further notice during these times:
• Gailbrath Park Road site7 days a week from 7:30 am – 4pm (a loader will be available)
Please note no further green waste from residents should be disposed of at this site, all green waste should go to the Cannonvale transfer station.
• Carlo Drive opposite Cannonvale Council Depot siteThursday-Sunday 7:30am – 4pm (a loader will be available)
In regards to the collection of mulch residents should be aware of the following:
• Council will have machinery in place to assist with loading• Residents are requested to cover their loads upon leaving the sites and refusal to do so may lead to free mulch being denied• Council will not be held liable for inconsistent mulch quality or any impact once collected by the resident.• Council asks for your patience while Council’s contractors load the vehicles in front
The stockpiles will be monitored as the community takes delivery and Council will provide updates as to whether a site will be closed or collection times extended.
