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 for excess amounts Council offers other disposal options, including:
Your valid Household Waste Disposal Vouchers or Garden (Green) Waste Disposal Vouchers are accepted as payment.
Prepare the excess garden (green) waste for collection and leave it just outside your fence or property boundary, not on the footpath and not too close to the road.
Your payment is made at the time of booking.

To book a pick up of your garden waste contact:
Our Depots turn your garden waste into a mulch-like organic soil and then offer it back to Shoalhaven residents for free! It is a mulch-like soil that may be used in your garden. Keep in mind that the amounts available will depend on how much garden waste we have received into the Depot recently.
Please contact Recycling & Waste Services to check on availability of the shredded garden waste at your local Recycling and Waste Depot.
See our Mulch Disclaimer brochure for more details.
We are committed to reducing the amount of waste going into our landfills by re-using, reducing and recycling responsibly.
