Household Waste Disposal Vouchers

Household Waste Disposal Vouchers are issued to all Shoalhaven ratepayers annually to assist with the disposal of excess household waste at the depot.

Ratepayers receive two vouchers with their July rates notice to use at Council’s Recycling and Waste Depots or for Green and Bulky Waste Collection services.

Extension to Household Waste Disposal Vouchers

Due to the Covid-19 Depot interruptions, Council’s 2019-20 Household Waste Disposal Vouchers are now valid until 30 September 2020. Redeem them at our Recycling and Waste Depots or convenient on-call pick up service.

Get the most out of your vouchers by sorting your waste and recycling to save even more.
