Free green waste disposal following severe storm

Following Monday's storm, Council has waived tip charges for the disposal of storm related green waste at Parkes Waste Facility.

Council's General Manager, Kent Boyd said "we have been concentrating on emergency works such as opening roads and other hazardous jobs".

Council crews responded to call-outs on Monday evening and commenced clearing debris and fallen tree limbs.

While resources are limited this week due to the Parkes Elvis Festival, crews will continue to assess and prioritise clean-up work, and attend to any jobs deemed urgent. Low risk clean-up work will be undertaken early next week.

Residents are encouraged to contact Council's Engineering Services Department to report any debris, tree limbs or fallen trees on public land.

Residents have until Sunday 12 January at 4.15pm to dispose of any green waste from the storm for free.

Council's Engineering Department can be contacted on 02 6861 2344.
