THE council is offering residents cleaning up after the flood free tip use until Friday, February 10.

In a statement released about 1pm today, the council advised it was working to clear the rest of the shire and offer further kerb collections to heavily impacted areas.

"Following the declaration of Tweed as a natural disaster zone, council is working around the clock to the assist residents across the Tweed's 1303 square kilometres," the statement said.

"This includes some targeted kerbside collections for the major flood affected areas only on Monday and Tuesday."

- Residents are requested to separate green waste from household items if possible.

- No liquid wastes, chemicals, asbestos or hazardous substances.
