As the wet season is fast approaching, Council is urging residents to prepare for future weather events by disposing of damaged or unused play equipment, outdoor furniture, barbeques, old sheets of corrugated iron and branches from around your home.
These items can become airborne in a storm or cyclone causing damage to houses or serious injury.
Council reminds each household within Hinchinbrook Shire that they are entitled to four virtual vouchers per financial year which allows them to dispose of up to four loads of domestic waste or green waste free of charge.
In addition all metal items can be can disposed of for free at anytime.
