Storm Debris Clean Up

Storm debris clean up at Seven Mile Beach

A big thumbs up to our intrepid outdoor crew who spent last Friday and Saturday at Seven Mile Beach cleaning up storm debris built up over the last year.

The crew was busy at the northern end of the beach at Gerroa down to the area adjacent to the old tip site.

Over the two days they managed to remove 50 tonnes of material.

This latest operation follows the work they did following the April storms cleaning more than 100 tonnes of storm debris from our parks and reserves, drains and culverts.

That's on top of the 20 tonnes of green waste dropped off by residents to our Minnamurra depot, that was also the result of the April storms.

At the same time, our residents also dropped off more than 19 tonnes of flood damaged items to the neighbouring Dunmore landfill.

The free residential drop-offs were made possible through Kiama Council waiving the fees for dropping off their green waste and flood damaged items.

This amounted to a savings of around $11,700 for our residents.

Our thanks to the NSW Government for providing funding support for our clean-up at Seven Mile Beach through the Crown Land Flood Recovery Program.

The Seven Mile Beach cleanup cost around $8,600.
