Green waste kerbside collection soon to be completed

Redland City Council has now collected an enormous six kilometre stretch of green waste, one metre wide by one metre high, from Redland streets.

Mayor Karen Williams said Council’s free post-storm kerbside collections, which started on Monday 11 February, would take several more weeks to complete.

“Pick-ups around the entire city are being done as fast as possible and are expected to be completed by mid-March, weather permitting,” Cr Williams said.

Cr Williams also thanked residents for their patience in having their green waste collected by Council officers.

“We really appreciate everyone’s patience, especially because the continuing wet weather has slowed down pick-ups.

“I would also like to thank those who made sure their green waste was clean and free of contaminants, which means it can be recycled into mulch,” Cr Williams said.

Collections are complete in the following suburbs:

  • Mt Cotton (except for busy roads that require specialised traffic control)
  • Ormiston
  • Thorneside
  • Victoria Point
  • Wellington Point
  • Dunwich
  • Point Lookout
  • Coochiemudlo Island
  • Lamb Island
  • Macleay Island
  • Russell Island

Post-storm green waste kerbside collections are currently under way in the following areas:

  • Alexandra Hills (Allenby Road area)
  • Birkdale (Bailey Road area)
  • Capalaba (Park residential areas)
  • Cleveland (Passage and Beach Street areas)
  • Amity Point
  • Redland Bay (Point Talburpin area)
  • Sheldon (Pioneers Street area)
  • Thornlands (Thornlands Road area)

Collections on Karragarra Island will start later this week.

The free green waste kerbside collection is a one-off free service being offered to residents in the wake of the wild weather resulting from ex-cyclone Oswald.
