Waste Levy scrapped for Port Stephens after April rain event

THE NSW Government is extending the waste levy waiver to Port Stephens communities grappling with the aftermath of heavy rainfall and flooding in early April.

Residents in affected areas of Port Stephens can now dispose of flood-affected items at landfill sites without incurring the waste levy fee.

Lifting the fee aims to expedite the recovery process and ease financial burdens on impacted households and businesses.

Residents will not be charged until 30 June 2024, though local landfill gate fees may apply.

The waiver covers waste on public and private land, including damaged building materials, furniture, carpet, gardening debris and any other flood-related products.
