How to protect our sewer network

Nambucca Shire Council is having to devote more resources and money to dealing with blockages related to flushable wipes. These wipes do not disintegrate and have a tendency to matt together and cause blockages in pipelines and particularly in pumps.

Waste Management

Nambucca Shire Council has been proactive in this area by entering into a partnership with Coffs Harbour City and Bellingen Shire Councils and Handybin Waste Services resulting in a regional waste collection service which commenced at the end of 2005 and is known as Coffs Coast Waste Service.
