Funds for property clean up in Bega Valley and Eurobodalla fire zones

Member for Bega Andrew Constance has today announced that bushfire affected residents in the Bega Valley and Eurobodalla shires will not have to worry about the cost of cleaning up their properties, with the NSW Government funding the clean-up costs of the recent bushfires which have devastated our region.

“The impacts of the recent bushfires that have devastated much of our state have been felt particularly hard across the Bega Valley and Eurobodalla shires,” Mr Constance said.

“After seeing and hearing the amazing actions of our community during this period, I cannot express how proud I am to be the representative of this amazing electorate during these trying times.

“The NSW Government has provided disaster recovery relief to help residents of Bega Valley and Eurobodalla shires get back on their feet as soon as possible.”

“This funding will help pay for the clean-up of hazardous materials including the removal of asbestos-contaminated material released as a result of the bushfires, concrete slabs, and all dangerous debris including destroyed homes, sheds and trees.

"I do not want people being out of pocket when it comes to cleaning up their properties, whether they are insured or not,” Mr Constance said.

The NSW Government has also waived waste levy fees for residents disposing of bushfire-generated waste at nominated facilities saving households thousands of dollars. Building materials, garniture and any other bushfire generated waste is included.

Mr Constance said this funding will go a long way in terms of helping bushfire affected regions recover from the damage caused by the recent blazes.

“Regional NSW is going through an incredibly difficult time with the drought biting hard and ferocious bushfires across the state and this funding is an important step towards helping communities get back on their feet,” Mr Constance said.

“Homes and lives have been destroyed and the NSW Government will do everything we can to help families rebuild and recover for the long run.

“The NSW Government will continue to be part of the disaster recovery for the long term, with more support to be made available as the extent of the damage becomes clear.
