Waste Depots

Council actively supports and promotes recycling to the community due to the wide-reaching environmental benefits that recycling offers. Increases in recycling efforts by our community leads to a reduction in waste buried in landfill as well as less pressure on natural resources. Together, Council and the community can work to protect the beautiful and naturally diverse environment in which we live. 

Council has 10 waste and recyling depots at various locations throughout the Shoalhaven, which you can see on this Google map (new window). Council also operates and maintains 5 Community Recycling Centres throughout the Shoalhaven.
