20 September - The Wooroloo Bushfire Coordinated Residential Clean-up Program has reached practical completion, with all 135 registered sites marked as complete.
There are a small number of properties that need sand deliveries and scrap metal pickup and that will be completed shortly.
Recycling of material was a priority throughout the clean-up effort. The amount of rubble recycled was 8,829 cubic metres, up from 8,719 last week. Asbestos waste (including soil) stands at 3,288 tonnes. General waste is at 3,432 tonnes and 108 tonnes of metal have been recycled.
The next step is to complete the Site Completion Reports for each property and then issue Completion Certificates to the respective landowners.
Residents are thanked for their patience and cooperation during the clean-up program. Regular updates will no longer be provided on this page. Anyone seeking more information about the clean-up can call 1800 328 997.
The Wooroloo Bushfire Coordinated Residential Clean-up Program is jointly funded through the Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.
