Managed by: NSW Environment Protection Authority
This program will financially support impacted councils through the reimbursement of the costs they have incurred to clean up and make safe their community and recreation assets. Clean-up of these assets is a critical step in the recovery process as it allows the community to return to using and enjoying them.
Many council community and recreation assets are also located within environmentally sensitive areas, including rivers, wetlands and beaches. Debris and waste harm these areas’ environmental values, and so must be cleaned up.
