Household & Garden 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 household waste disposal vouchers with their rates notices in July. In June 2020 ratepayers received three (3) additional Garden Waste Disposal Vouchers. Vouchers can be used at Council’s Recycling and Waste Depots or for Green and Bulky Waste Collection services.
