Organic Waste Services

Green Waste will now be accepted at transfer stations and landfills under the following conditions

 

If you cannot safely stockpile green waste at home, please read the following guidelines: 

Our green waste services have resumed; however long delays are expected.

Sites are open their usual days and not all sites accept green waste. To find out which sites accept green waste visit Landfill and Transfer Station hours and locations

Green waste bays have been set up to ensure social distancing and traffic management will be in place.

We expect a high volume of customers and queues. Priority will be given to garbage trucks, bushfire waste and contractors.

All green waste loads will be inspected, so make sure your green waste does not contain soil, plastic, food scraps, or hazardous waste. Branches must be under 30 cm in diameter.

Disrespectful behaviour towards our staff or other customers won’t be tolerated.

 

Kerbside Organics Service 

 The kerbside collection of green waste is provided to residential properties in most major townships within the shire. 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.

 

For more information, check our Household Waste, Recycling and Organics Guide.
