The Federal Government and the South Australian Government will fund a coordinated clean-up of bushfire related waste. Green Industries SA are coordinating the clean up and removal of waste to ensure efficient and safe removal of debris to minimise risks and impacts to public health and safety and harm to the environment or community well-being.
The urgent areas for priority response are the safe management and removal of asbestos, CCA treated timber (‘permapine’) and ash and hazardous chemicals like pesticide, herbicide and fertiliser but will also include the removal of bricks, rubble and demolition waste, e-waste, metals and polypipe and irrigation used by growers and farmers in the fire affected areas.
If you have not already registered your waste needs, please use this form to register your waste needs.
If you have already paid for waste removal, please retain evidence and documentation and contact your local recovery centre for more information:
