Gympie residents urged to take waste to the tip

GYMPIE residents were asked not to leave unwanted goods or other waste on the footpath and to take it to the Bonnick Rd Transfer Station, which is open its usual 8am-5pm operating hours.

Flood-impacted residents and business operators seeking clean-up assistance can also call the Local Disaster Coordination Centre hotline on 5482 6399 and skip bins can be made available in some circumstances.

Residents are advised to put their rubbish bins out on their usual collection days and contracted cleaning services will make collections as soon as they can.

All council transfer stations are operating their usual opening hours.
