Kerbside Waste Services
Activation of Kerbside Service
Just built a new home and are ready to move in? You will need to activate your kerbside waste and recycling collection service for your property. This can be done by contacting Council or visiting one of our business centres.
First you will need to find out if your property is located within a kerbside collection area and if it is; ask for your service to be activated.
A pro rata charge will apply and that amount will be determined by the remaining balance of the year from 1 July.
Domestic Kerbside Waste Collection Service
The kerbside collection of household waste is provided to residential properties in most major townships within East Gippsland Shire. Red-lidded household waste bins with a capacity of 120 litres are supplied to all households within the defined collection area.
Waste bins are collected weekly and residents are asked to place their bin out on the kerb the night before collection is scheduled (e.g. Thursday collection means you should put you bin out Wednesday night to ensure a prompt and efficient service for residents).
Please do not overfill your bin or place excess waste next to or around your bin. Excess waste that will not fit into your bin needs to be disposed of at your nearest landfill/transfer station. Please note that fees will apply at most of these facilities.
Check your kerbside waste collection day
Please ensure you place your bins on the kerb one metre apart and with enough space for the truck's mechanical arm to easily lift your bin.
