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.

So far our crews have collected an enormous amount of green waste from the streets of Redland City – if stacked one metre wide and one metre high, the pile would continue for 5.8 kilometres.

Council’s post-storm cleanup well under way


Redland City Mayor Karen Williams today thanked residents for having their clean green waste on the footpath and ready for Council’s last round of post-storm kerbside collections.

Cr Williams said that Council crews had been very busy cleaning up after the wild weather resulting from ex-cyclone Oswald.

“Our free city-wide green waste kerbside collection is progressing well – as of today our crews have completed collections in Mount Cotton, Coochiemudlo Island, Dunwich, Thorneside, Lamb Island and Russell Island and as of Friday (15 February), a whopping 2600 cubic metres of green waste has been collected for mulching,” Cr Williams said.

“Collections are currently under way at Wellington Point, Capalaba, Point Lookout, Birkdale, Macleay Island, Victoria Point and Thornlands.”

Collection crews are yet to reach Ormiston, Amity Point, Sheldon, Alexandra Hills, Cleveland, Redland Bay and Karragarra Islands.

In addition to the free green waste kerbside collection, Council crews have already cleared most roads of debris and are currently cleaning beaches, parks and fire trails and tracks within our conservation reserves.

Cr Williams said Council mowing crews were continuing to work on Saturdays.

“The Redlands is looking decidedly lush with all the recent rain,” she said.

“If we haven’t got to you or your suburb yet, rest assured, we will over the coming weeks.”
