City of Palmerston’s annual Pre-Cyclone Clean-Up is a great way to de-clutter your yard and keep it safe for the cyclone and storm season. 

To make it easy, Council’s Pre-Cyclone Clean-Up is divided into four zones just like the bin collections, with each collection day beginning on a Monday until complete. We ask that residents place unwanted items on their verge the weekend prior. Be sure to lock the following dates into your diaries:

Zone 1 – Marlow Lagoon, Driver and Moulden 
Monday, 4 September

Zone 2 – Bellamack, Rosebery, Woodroffe and Bakewell
Monday, 11 September

Zone 3 – Gray, Gunn, Palmerston CBD and Durack 
Monday, 18 September

Zone 4 – Johnston, Zuccoli and Farrar 
Monday, 25 September

City of Palmerston Mayor, Athina Pascoe-Bell encourages Palmerston residents to take advantage of the annual hard waste collection.

“City of Palmerston’s Pre-Cyclone Clean-Up is very popular and we want to make sure that everyone takes advantage of it this year. This service provides a great opportunity to have a tidy up, keep the community safe during cyclone and storm season and for us all to do our bit for the environment.

We ask that you be sure to follow the instructions by Council of the items that can and cannot be collected, and please only place your unwanted items on the verge the weekend prior to pick-up, not before.

Last year Council collected a total of 338 tonnes of waste of which 96 tonnes was recycled.” she said.
