Bega Valley Shire Council and local contractors have cleaned up more than 10,000 tonnes of green waste and removed more than 1,300 dangerous trees from 60 road reserves over the last five months.

Unfortunately, we have seen a lot of illegal dumping of green waste throughout this project and remind residents that dumping of waste on road reserve is illegal and carries a $4,000 on-the-spot fine.

This project has been funded by the NSW Environment Protection Authority following the Black Summer bushfires.

The material generated from this waste is being re-used on site as mulch, donated to local and nearby residents and organisations and is also set to be re-used in local community projects.

The project will finish at the end of October.

If you have green waste to dispose, please use Council’s local waste transfer stations.

Illegal dumping is a crime and should be reported. You can report illegal dumping via a form on council’s website.
