Special flood clean-up arrangements

SPECIAL flood debris clean-ups are taking place across the Hastings after the weekend’s wild weather left a trail of destruction.

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, in conjunction with waste management business JR Richards, is working on either side of the Hastings River today.

Today the clean-ups will centre on Port Macquarie’s North Shore and Settlement Point some of the areas most flood-affected.

A Byabarra and Ellenborough Rural waste collection will run this weekend.

Waste facilities will accept flood-damaged household goods and debris free of charge until Monday, March 11.

“Council would appreciate if residents could separate materials as much as possible,“ a spokeswoman said.

Separating green waste from household waste is particularly important as this will reduce the amount of material needed to be sent to landfill.
