Where does your rubbish go?

Council contracts Wheelie Waste to collect general rubbish and recyclables throughout the shire via a kerbside collection service.

Once Wheelie Waste collects this waste, it transports it to landfill or recycling. Recyclables are delivered to the Visy Material Recovery Facility in Springvale, with Visy sorting and sending materials for reprocessing at other facilities. Landfill waste is delivered to the Hume City Council operated landfill facility in Sunbury.

In addition, Council provides a green waste service all year round at our three transfer stations. Waste delivered here is then mulched for resale and reuse by Council.
