Flood waste accepted free of charge by Hawkesbury City Council

The Hawkesbury City Waste Management Facility is accepting flood waste free of charge from Hawkesbury residential properties impacted by the recent floods. Residents who are attending the Waste Management Facility are asked to show patience, kindness, and respect to all onsite staff. Traffic control will be in place over the weekend.

Flood waste should not contain prohibited items like soil, fibro, or asbestos. Loads will be checked at the weighbridge as usual. Loads containing asbestos or any other prohibited waste will be rejected. These cannot be accepted even if it is flood waste.

The Waste Management Facility is open to Hawkesbury Local Government Area residents from 8am to 4pm, 7 days a week (excluding public holidays). Please bring proof of address such as a Driver’s Licence or Rates Notice. Please note that charges apply for all other waste that is not flood waste and for residential properties that are not flood affected.

The NSW Reconstruction Authority’s Pop Up Flood Recovery Centre that was at Windsor Function Centre is now closed.
