Asbestos can be found in and around most houses built before 1987. Homeowners need to know what asbestos is and what precautions you must take if you are planning to renovate or make repairs around your home.

Fee relief from waste disposal charges for not-for-profit community groups 

Byron Shire Council recognises that not-for-profit community groups involved in the operation of second hand shops provide the community with significant social benefits, whilst helping to divert valuable resources from being sent to landfill. Not-for-profit community groups that clean up public land assist with environmental management, improving the aesthetic and amenity of the Shire.

Not-for-profit community groups often have limited financial resources. In recognition of these limited financial resources Council is providing fee relief from waste disposal charges to assist not-for-profit community groups that run disposal stores for the sale of second hand and reusable items and for not-for-profit community groups that clean up public land under its adopted policy 12/019.
