Ningi and Toorbul Waste Transfer Stations open for storm clean-up

Posted: 8am 09 Dec 2020

The Ningi and Toorbul Waste Transfer Stations will be open all day today (Ningi) and Thursday 10 Dec (Toorbul), from 7am to 6pm, to help locals clean up after yesterday’s wild weather.

Mayor Peter Flannery says there are no limits on what households can dump, but the usual rules apply to commercial operators.

“We want locals back up on their feet as quickly as possible,” Mayor Flannery says.

“By opening up Ningi today and Toorbul on Thursday, we’ll save locals the drive to Caboolture as they work to remove debris and storm damage from their properties.

“We’re also suspending the usual load limits for domestic customers at Ningi Transfer Station until COB on Tuesday, December 15, 2020.

“That means households will be able to bring larger loads than the usual 1.5 cubic metre limit, to help you clean up your place faster and with no additional expense.

“Council crews and contractors will also be out continuing with the clean-up of Council parks and road reserves, and we’re organising additional bins and frequency of collections at the Ningi Waste Transfer Station to help.”

What do commercial operators need to do?

Commercial operators will still need to go to Caboolture, as the Ningi facility can’t handle large commercial vehicles.

Cr Brooke Savige (Div 1) has thanked Council officers for responding to her request to open the Ningi Transfer Station.

“This truly has been a massive community effort in the last 24 hours, with emergency crews working through the night to have almost everyone reconnected to power within 24 hours of the storm hitting,” she says.

“Energex crews worked through the night and the SES have done an absolutely outstanding job helping people with emergency repairs.

“I think opening Ningi and Toorbul is a practical and sensible way Council can help, and I want to thank staff for expediting this action.”
