Green Waste Clean-up Initiative

In preparation for the upcoming cyclone season, the Cassowary Coast Regional Council is initiating a Green Waste Clean-Up Program for all domestic customers. Between Thursday 23 November and Tuesday 28 November residents are encouraged to clean up their yards and dispose of all green waste material.

Between this period, domestic customers can self-haul unlimited amounts of green waste including tree clippings, palm fronds and other green matter to six Transfer Station locations across the Cassowary Coast region. Domestic cars, utilities and/or trailers and light trucks (up to GVM 4 tonnes) only. 

Residents can take their green waste to waste transfer stations at Stoters Hill in Innisfail, Tully, Hulls Head, Bells Creek in El Arish, Cardwell and South Mission Beach. Transfer station opening hours are listed below.

“Good planning is critical in the lead up to cyclone season and we want to assist as many residents as possible be prepared. Now in its second year, the Green Waste Clean Up initiative is instilling this proactive attitude amongst those in our community. Cyclone damage can be minimised when green spaces are kept tidy and now residents have even further incentive” said Councillor Jeffrey Baines.
