Garden (Green) Waste

Garden (green) waste is excess garden vegetation that includes grass clippings, pruned branches, leaves, flowers and weeds.

Garden waste can go in your red-lid bin, but as an alternative, or for excess amounts, Council offers other disposal options:

  1. Arranging a Green & Bulky Waste Collection pick up service
  2. Dropping it off to your nearest Council Recycling and Waste Depot
    • Weighbridge Depots $11 per 100 kg
    • Non Weighbridge Depots $30 per cubic metre (equivalent of a level 6x4 trailer load)

Your valid Household Waste Disposal Vouchers or Garden (Green) Waste Disposal Vouchers are accepted as payment.

Free! Shredded garden organics

Our Recycling and Waste Depots turn your garden waste into a pasteurised mulch-like product and then offer it back to Shoalhaven residents for free! Availability is dependent on how much our Recycling and Waste Depots receive and how much has been removed by residents.

It is suitable for use in your garden. See our Mulch Disclaimer for more details.
