The Town provides a green waste collection each year in February, May, August and November. The collections commence at 7am on the Monday following your scheduled weekend set-out dates. The waste is taken to a green waste processing facility where it is shredded and turned into horticultural products for use in landscaping. Any contaminants in your waste (chicken wire, metal, building rubble, junk, household waste) results in waste being rejected by the processing facility.
Green waste contaminated with rubbish will not be collected.
For those residents without a verge or with a very small verge please contact our Waste Team on 9311 8111 to make alternative arrangements for collection.
