Scenic Rim making vegetation clean-up progress

Scenic Rim Regional Council says major progress is being made in the collection of disaster-related vegetation at Tamborine and Tamborine Mountain following the severe Christmas/New Year storms.

Despite ongoing wet weather and some resourcing issues, the mammoth task of removing disaster-related vegetation generated by the storm event impacting homes and access to residential properties is running to schedule, the Council says.

While the collection is scheduled to be completed in the Scenic Rim’s east by 1 March, Council will continue to monitor the situation to ensure coverage of Areas 3 and 4 until 5pm on Friday 8 March in the event of wet weather or equipment shortages.

Works are ongoing where rain or the availability of plant and equipment disrupted the collection at some sites in Areas 1 and 2 on Tamborine Mountain – south of Curtis Road and Beacon Road and west of Geissmann Road and north of Beacon Road.

However, only disaster-related vegetation that was placed by the kerbside as requested by Council before the collection commenced in these areas earlier this month will be removed.

The collection of disaster-related vegetation generated by the Christmas storm event impacting homes and access to residential properties at Tamborine and Tamborine Mountain is provided through the jointly-funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
