SERVICING OF GREASE TRAPS IN HINCHINBROOK

Due to changing regulations and recent advice from the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection grease trap waste can no longer be processed in Hinchinbrook.  This has led to changes in the options available to residents for grease trap servicing. Should you require further information or have any difficulty in servicing your grease trap or septic tank please contact Environment and Community Services on 4776 4607.

The Hinchinbrook Shire Council in partnership with the Hinchinbrook Community Support Centre (HCSC), will be providing a Hard Rubbish Support Program for eligible residents again in 2016.
