Clean-up offer for flood-hit areas

CLARENCE Valley Council will hold  a special clean-up for villages that were inundated during the recent floods.

Household flood damaged material will be picked up from inundated areas of Palmers Island, Harwood, Brushgrove, Cowper, Tucabia, Southgate and Lawrence.

The special flood clean-up will START on Monday January 24.

The council said items should be left on the kerbside and only household flood damaged items would be collected.

"It is intended that this collection is for damaged household items only, not green waste or other general waste," a council spokesman said.

"No dangerous or hazardous items such as asbestos will be collected."

Those living outside these village areas but who  were inundated by floodwaters can contact Clarence Waste Solutions, on 1800 335 599, by Friday, January 21, to organise a collection.

The council is also offering a $20 rebate on water rates for flood-affected properties to assist in washing them down.

Application forms for this rebate are available from Council or on the council’s website.

Mayor Richie Williamson said:  “Council is doing all it can to clean up after the devastating floods and we hope this incentive will assist those residents in flood areas. It is important to note properties which were not inundated are not eligible for these services.”
