Waste clean-up after bushfire
All waste collection services are back to normal.
Disposal of sorted metal refuse such as fire affected buildings or cars can be disposed of for free at our waste facilities.
The NSW Government has waived waste levy fees for residents disposing of bushfire-generated waste. This includes building materials (even asbestos) and furniture. These items can be taken to our waste facilities, but will still be subject to reduced fees.
Members of the community who have a fire damaged house or building that needs to be disposed of, should first speak to their insurer. If the property is uninsured, you should contact the Public Works Advisory on 1800 88 55 39 to discuss clean-up. You can also call the Disaster Welfare Assistance Line on 1800 018 444.
