Adoption of Council's Waste Management Strategy

Council has developed a new Waste Management Strategy that aims to reduce waste and increase recycling in the shire.

Building waste and asbestos

We can accept small quantities of building waste but do not accept Asbestos at our Transfer Stations.


Many household items can be recycled by putting them in your recycling bin or taking them to your local Transfer Station.
