Organic Waste Services
Kerbside Organics Service
The kerbside collection of green waste is provided to residential properties in most major townships within East Gippsland Shire Council. Dark green-lidded household green waste bins with a capacity of 240L are supplied to all households within the defined green waste service area.
Bins are collected fortnightly and residents are asked to place their bin out on the kerb the night before collection is scheduled (e.g. Thursday collection means putting your bin out Wednesday night to ensure a prompt and efficient service for residents).
Please do not overfill your bin or place excess green waste next to or around your bin. Excess green waste that will not fit into your bin needs to be disposed of at your nearest landfill/transfer station. It is now free to dispose of your green waste under 0.3m in diameter.
Check which day your kerbside green waste is collected.
