Flood Waste Bulk Collection

Since Monday 3 April, contractors have collected 4500 tonnes of flood debris from homes and business across the Tweed in the aftermath of Cyclone Debbie. Contractors predict another 500 tonnes will be collected over coming days.

Many residents in the flood affected areas have seen their debris collected and street washed down, with the majority of the remaining areas to be serviced ahead of Easter. Contractors will be returning to flood affected areas after Easter for additional spot cleans as piles of debris reappear ahead of the Household Clean Up Campaign. The Household Clean Up Campaign commences on Monday 24 April and dates of the collection zones will be announced in the next edition of the Tweed Link


There will no longer be any collection of green waste debris from flood affected areas, only hard rubbish will continue to be collected.

Household Clean Up

If you have a smaller amount of waste to dispose, there is a household clean up collection starting on Monday 24 April or it can be taken to the landfill if you are able to. Dates of the collection zones will be announced in the next edition of the Tweed Link. This well help crew on the ground immensely. For further information please see Household Cleanup Campaign.

Hazardous Materials

If you have small quantities of asbestos or are unsure of whether the material is hazardous, please:
  • Stack any materials you are concerned about in neat piles away from other household waste
  • Cover if possible (it needs to be wrapped in black builder's plastic, available from hardware stores)
  • Do not break up the material as that will release the toxic fibres. Keep it as big as possible and keep it damp.
For more information on hazardous materials, contact the Environmental Health Section at Council on (02) 6670 2400. An officer will return your call and arrange to inspect the materials as soon as possible to provide you with advice.

Thank you for your patience. Crews are doing the best they can and will continue to work over the Easter weekend.
