Free collection of burnt rural fencing

Rural Eurobodalla residents who are yet to dispose of fire-affected fencing materials can now register to have it collected from their property and recycled for free.

Eurobodalla Council recently received funding from the NSW Environment Protection Authority’s FenceCycle program to help bushfire-impacted property owners safely get rid of and recycle burnt fencing materials.

The program covers the cost of collection and recycling for the metal components of typical rural fencing, including barbed and plain wire, netting or mesh, timber or metal posts and farm gates. It does not include urban fencing, such as solid metal panneling or chain-wire security-type fencing.
