MidCoast Council is indicating that its clean-up bill from the severe storm event of December 20 could top $350,000 as it continues to schedule clean-up operations across the MidCoast. 

Natural disaster funding from the State Government was allocated in the early days after the event to clear roads and make road verges safe.

Debris in parks and on community land, which has to be removed at a cost to Council, is prioritised according to safety first, and thereafter scheduled to be undertaken where and when resources can be allocated.

Council does not collect piles of green waste placed by residents on median strips throughout the area, residents must dispose of this waste appropriately themselves.
