Northern Rivers flood disaster response

The scale of impact of the recent flooding in northern NSW and Sydney is extensive, with thousands of homes affected, many of which have been declared uninhabitable. A key priority has been to deal with the enormous amount of waste generated. The experience gained from the 2019-20 bushfires and 2021 flood clean-up programs has enabled PWA to quickly establish disaster recovery centres, implement a waste processing strategy and activate a kerb-side waste collection process, within a few days of waters receding from flooded towns.
