Moreton Army to stand down as target clean-ups continue

Moreton Army to stand down as target clean-ups continue

Volunteers who selflessly gave their own time to help families, schools, businesses and community centres clean up after the devastating floods have been thanked for their help.

Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery says the focus will now turn to targeted clean-ups in the community, with the Moreton Army standing down.

“The Moreton Army processed 270 requests for help, and assisted residents at over 100 properties," Mayor Flannery says. 

“They removed wet furniture, carpets, debris, and helped cleaning inside and outside homes and gardens and we wouldn’t have been able to move so quickly into the recovery phase without them.

“I want to thank everyone who signed up, there were more than 4,000 registered volunteers, so we also appreciate your understanding if you didn’t get a call up."

Help still available for affected residents 

Mayor Flannery says help is still available for those who need it during the recovery process.

“If you are in a situation requiring help, please call Council or visit our disaster portal online for all relevant information - including about the financial assistance that’s currently available," he says. 

“For those who didn’t get a chance to volunteer this time can still help in other ways by offering your support around your neighbourhood, donating to Givit or even just letting a neighbour borrow your ute to dump damaged goods while free dumping is available.”

Residents are reminded they can still take their waste to the tip for free for any outstanding rubbish.

For eligible flood affected residents, skip bins can still be requested by calling Customer Service on 3205 0555.
