Free tip fees for flood-damaged items

Residents are being offered free rubbish disposal at Sunshine Coast Council tips until close of business on Sunday to residents impacted by flooding.

Residents with storm-related garden waste are asked to keep it on their properties until further notice, given a lack of short term storage at resource recovery centres.

Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson said council aimed to support residents as they cleaned up after the severe weather.

“The recent disaster event made our Sunshine Coast resource recovery centres and transfer stations inaccessible,” Mayor Jamieson said.

“Now they are in a state to receive general waste, flood damaged items can be dropped off for free.

“In the first instance, residents are reminded to contact their insurer, who may have specific requirements in the event of a claim.
