Flood-affected Byron Shire residents will have the opportunity to dispose of water-damaged hard rubbish at the Myocum tip for free until February 26, Byron Council says.
And all residents will be able to drop their green waste at the recovery centre without charge over the same period.
According to a Council statement, the opportunities became available thanks to the declaration of Byron as a natural disaster zone.
Residents are asked to check their insurance policies before taking up the free dumping offer as the service might already be covered.
Residents dumping green waste need to bring proof of residency such as a driver’s licence or rates notice and present it at the weigh bridge to quality for green waste disposal.
All customers will be required to enter and exit over the weighbridge, regardless of whether they are making a payment or not.
