A Free Tipping Weekend has been confirmed for October 5, 6 and 7 – the October long weekend.


This will allow all residential customers to utilise the waste management facilities for free (even if they do not have a voucher). Running the event in October also allows all residents to clear their properties of unwanted items just prior to the cyclone season in order to reduce the risk of wind-blown debris.


The October free tipping weekend will be part of a larger overarching ‘Waste Wise’ marketing campaign.

By combining different initiatives under a single umbrella a broad reaching campaign will be delivered that is stronger than its individual elements.


A Summary of the Waste Wise campaign is below. Great Northern Clean Up 20-22 September Clean Up Australia Day that specifically caters to the tropical climate of North Queensland.
Free Tipping Weekend 5-7 October Waste Management Facilities will be open for the weekend for free.
