Shoalhaven waives flood waste disposal fees

Shoalhaven flood waste

Shoalhaven City Council has waived disposal costs for flood damaged waste throughout July.

In support of the clean-up effort, waste caused by the July 2022 severe weather and floods in the Shoalhaven area can be disposed of free of charge at any Council Recycling and Waste Depot until the close of business on Sunday, 31 July 2022.

Residents will be required to sign a declaration at the Waste Depot that the waste disposed is a result of the 2022 July severe weather and flooding event.

In a statement, the council said the Shoalhaven community has shown incredible resilience during yet another challenging event. Providing free tipping of flood damaged waste is a crucial step in the recovery phase for the whole community.

Shoalhaven is one of 23 local government areas eligible for disaster assistance following severe storms and flooding impacting large areas of Sydney and the New South Wales coast from 27 June 2022.

The Shoalhaven River at Nowra and Terara peaked at near moderate flooding on Sunday. It is the second time in five months the community has been left with a massive clean-up effort following floods in March 2022.
