CLEANAWAY hopes its waste fleet will be back on the road by noon on Wednesday, August 20, Fraser Coast Regional Council chief executive Lisa Desmond has told the council meeting.
The council is advising residents to leave their bins out until they're collected.
The national fleet was grounded after a horror traffic crash in South Australia.
Ms Desmond said the fleet would be backtracked while the truck drivers worked to catch up.
She said there was no indication any Fraser Coast truck would have issues.
Ms Desmond said trucks might work during the weekend.
Areas affected in Hervey Bay include Scarness, Pialba, Urraween, Eli Waters, Dundowran Beach, Craignish and Burrum Heads.
In Maryborough, Granville, The Pocket, Maaroom, Boonooroo, Tuan, Tinnanbah, Tiaro and Owanyilla have been affected.
Queensland-based waste management company Transpacific pulled its entire fleet from the nation's roads as investigations continued into the fatal crash in Adelaide on Monday.
Police are investigating whether a brake failure in a truck carrying effluent caused a pile-up which claimed the life of one man and left two other people in a critical condition.
Cleanaway, which comes under the Transpacific banner, runs a string of waste collection and management services between Bundaberg and Gympie and helps fund an $80,000 recycling education centre at Dundowran.
Transpacific chief executive Robert Boucher said the driver had undergone thorough driver safety training but the company had grounded the fleet "to conduct our own internal investigation and satisfy ourselves, the police and regulators of roadworthiness of our fleet and the adequacy of our maintenance program".
He also reiterated his condolences to the family of the deceased.
