What about trees causing problems now?
Planting the right tree at the right distance will ensure that you don't experience damage to your sewer pipes. But what do you do about trees that may have begun to cause damage? Bundaberg Regional Council will remove tree roots causing blockages from our sewer mains, at no cost.
Council does provide a service for removing tree roots located within your own pipes, however, charges do apply. To find out the relevant costs in providing this service, please contact our Customer Service Centre on 1300 883 699 as costs do vary between working hours and after hours.
This service provided by Council does not include the repair of homeowner's sewer pipes. A licensed plumber of your choice will be able to repair or replace the affected sewer pipes.
