Storm recovery extended

Wattle Range Council will continue to provide access to the Millicent Saleyards in the coming days to allow for disposal of green waste generated by last week’s tornado.

The freak winds and torrential rain occurred for 10 minutes from 6pm on Tuesday and damaged parts of Millicent and Furner.

The Millicent Saleyards site will be open every day through to Thursday (December 21) between 9am and 4pm.

The Waste Transfer Station at Millicent will be open on the usual days of today (Tuesday) Thursday, Saturday and Sunday but for the extended hours of 9am to 4pm.

Council has reminded residents that both facilities are provided for domestic loads of waste i.e. trailers and utes only.

“If residents are cleaning up their property post the storms using heavy machinery and are seeking a location to truck larger large volumes of green waste, please contact council on 8733 0900 as we may be able to assist with options for disposal,” a council spokesperson said.
