Information About Wet Weather Clean-Up

Posted: 13 Feb 2020
Central Coast Council is working with the SES, Ausgrid and other services to assist residents following the weekend's severe weather event.

Mayor Lisa Matthews said that safety was a priority for everyone involved. 

"The severe weather has caused fallen trees and broken powerlines across some roads and properties, in addition to flooding and debris impacting many locations across the coast," Mayor Matthews said.

"I urge everyone to be patient while Council, SES and Ausgrid methodically prioritise and manage the clean-up. We appreciate all the information that the community has provided to assist us in prioritising the work.

"Please keep clear of creeks and storm drains, and never attempt to drive or walk through flood waters. Use your common sense - if there is a road closed sign it is there for a reason.

"Safety for road users is a priority and Council's road crews are working hard to remove trees and re-open roads. Clean-up work will then be scheduled once this is completed. Please continue to report any potholes caused by wet weather to Council."

To assist with the clean-up of tree and garden waste, residents are reminded that they can book a kerbside collection for any waste that is too large for their Green Waste Bin. They can also dispose of tree or garden waste at one of Council's waste management facilities for free up until 29 February 2020. Residents simply need to show proof of residency.

Council will remove fallen trees and debris from Council property over the coming weeks.

For any household waste caused by flooding such as damaged carpet or furniture, residents can book a kerbside collection, or arrange a private skip. 

Central Coast Council also advises everyone to avoid swimming and other recreational activities at the beaches and waterways. Extended heavy rainfall increases the risk of waterways being impacted by pollution due to stormwater run-off and contact should be avoided for 24 hours after heavy rainfall or when lagoons are open or for as long as stormwater is present. Council works in partnership with other government departments to monitor and report on water quality regularly.
