As we enter into the final months before the end of 2017, many of you will be looking at leaving Townsville, and for others some may be deploying on operations.
Don’t forget to take advantage of the council’s free dumping weekend from Friday 27 October to Sunday 29 October 2017.
For those staying in Townsville, this is an ideal time to clear your yards of rubbish before the cyclone season, or before you leave.
You can make as many trips to the landfill as you need over this weekend.

If you see my councillors or me out and about, say hello as we are always happy to hear from our community.
