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.  The current options available for grease trap pump outs are:

Cleanaway – contact phone 4774 7333 or via website: www.cleanaway.com.au

JJ Richards – contact phone 4774 5555 or via website: www.jjrichards.com.au

You will need to contact such operators to organise the service and to secure quotes for the provision of the service.  Council will inform the Community in the event  other service providers become available in the future or in the alternative  you are encouraged to do your own research and obtain quotes from all service providers.

There are no changes to the disposal of septic tank waste so your usual service provider or plumber may still provide this service.

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.
