In This Section
Shoalhaven City Council provides information on safe and responsible ways to handle and dispose of building waste, including asbestos, as well as details about how to save on Depot fees.
Our Recycling and Waste Depots will accept building waste that is not contaminated with hazardous material.
Building waste contributes about half of all solid waste worldwide. Its environmental impact is substantial and can be a risk to your health and safety if not disposed of responsibly.
We are committed to reducing the amount of waste going into our landfills by re-using, reducing and recycling responsibly.
Property owners are responsible for the safe removal and disposal of building waste from renovations or works on their property.
While Council will not collect building waste, some items from small renovation projects may be accepted. To get more details visit our Bulky Waste Collection Service page.
Renovators need to know the precautions to take when doing renovations or repairs on their home.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous silicate material that becomes a health risk when the fibres are released into the air and breathed in.
