· The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is leading the collection and removal of shoreline debris and waste following the devastating March 2021 floods across NSW.
Clean up contractor Varley Group will be removing flood debris from the Manning River and the EPA is working to minimise impacts to the environment and human health when doing this work.
Most debris will be removed via the Manning Point boat ramp and nearby Bohnock boat ramp.
A standing area at Manning Point boat ramp has been established to manage the collected debris being off-loaded from boats. The removal of flood debris and silage waste (bales) is scheduled to commence from 7 May 2021.
For the next 10–12 days trucks will be driving through the Manning Point community to collect and take away the silage waste from the Manning Point boat ramp – around 6-10 bales with each trip. The community can expect to see trucks driving back and forwards around 6-8 times each day.
The EPA thanks the local community for their ongoing support during the clean-up of the Manning River.
