THE Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery has announced a special storm green waste collection to assist residents following the storms over the weekend.
Residents whose properties were impacted by fallen trees or branches during this week’s storm will be able to book an emergency green waste collection.
The collections must be booked through Council’s Website or by phoning Customer Service by 5pm on Thursday June 16. The contractors will pick up the storm-related vegetation debris in the week starting Monday June 20.
“By announcing the emergency green waste collection of branches and trees that came down in the storm, we’re able to help our residents clean up their properties quickly,” Cr Bradbery said.
The only material that can be put out for this emergency collection is large branches, shrubs and tree trunk segments that have fallen in the recent storm event. It doesn’t include other household garbage and green waste, soil, sand or silt.
Green waste must be placed kerbside, and branches should be stacked separately to sections of tree trunks more than 30cm in diameter by Monday 20 June.
Residents can book through Council’s customer service team on (02) 4227 7111 during business hours, or online anytime until Thursday June 16.
