Shoalhaven residents can dispose of flood-damaged waste free of charge at any of the Council Recycling and Waste Depots during normal depot opening days and times.

Council has decided to waive its waste depot disposal fees for flood-damaged waste effective immediately to help the community with the costs of cleaning up from the intense rain event of Friday 5 and Saturday 6 April 2024.

The full fee waiver applies until 22 April 2024. The State Government Levy portion of the fee will then continue to be waived until 30 June 2024.

Residents will be required to sign a declaration at the waste depot that the waste disposed is a result of flooding from the rain event that impacted areas across the city.

The waiver covers damaged building materials, furniture, garden debris and any other flood-related products. It does not apply to recycled materials.
