A fortnightly recycling service is available throughout the Shire. A timetable for collections and area maps can be downloaded below. The maps show which week ("A" or "B") and which week day the collections occur throughout the various areas within our Shire.
Your participation in the recycling service will result in saved landfill space, maximum recovery of resources and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. Only those items listed below can be placed in the recycling bin.
Drop off centres are located at Council's landfills. Scavenging is NOT permitted however useful items are separated by staff and are available for purchase.
