Whitsunday Regional Council would like to advise the community to take extreme care when handling damaged asbestos containing materials during the post Cyclone Debbie clean-up.
Residents are urged to not leave hazardous wastes on the kerbside or other public access areas and do not mix asbestos waste with green waste.
To minimise health risks make sure protective clothing is worn when cleaning-up and take the necessary precautions when handling hazardous waste such as asbestos.
