Free fill warning across the Highlands

Soilcontam

Highlands residents are being urged to be aware of dodgy operators who are offering free fill.

It follows a spate of incidents where large amounts of contaminated soil have been dumped on properties at Buxton, Hill Top, Paddy’s River and Wingello.

The residents had innocently responded to adverts of ‘clean fill’.

It's believed to have originated from large construction sites in Western Sydney.
