City Praises Clean Up Effort
Date Published: 20/06/2012
The clean-up from last week’s two damaging storm fronts is still underway this week with City Officers focussed on clearing any remaining debris from roads and public parks and reserves.
At the peak of the storm damage, more than 650 volunteer and career personnel worked tirelessly to help people in the South West recover from damage associated with tornadoes, strong wind gusts and destructive weather.
The City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels thanked everyone who worked during the storms: “It is important we all recognise the considerable effort of everyone who worked during and after the last week’s two destructive winter storms.
“On behalf of the City I would like to thank everyone who helped by committing their time and resources through the storms and those continue to work on the clean-up.”
With the City’s major area for green waste collections starting yesterday, which includes; Singleton, Golden Bay, Karnup, East Warnbro, Settlers Hills and Baldivis, no additional waste collections will be provided by the City for private property.
All Greenwaste verge collections are limited to two 6x4 trailer-loads or the equivalent of two cubic metres. Residents may also bring green waste and debris to the Millar Road Landfill facility, Millar road West, Baldivis (fee payable) between 7.30am to 4pm. The 2011/2012 hardcopy tip passes will remain valid until 30 September 2012.
City Officers are still concentrating on clearing public parks and median verges. Residents with concerns regarding insurance coverage should telephone the Insurance Council of Australia on 1300 728 228. (This number is not to be used for claims).
