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.
