Hard rubbish and tip vouchers
There is no hard rubbish collection in the Macedon Ranges. Council has investigated initiating such a service and has determined that due to the cost to residents and large geographic distances involved in the shire, this service is currently not viable.
We encourage our residents to use resource recovery facilities and op shops to recycle their hard waste.
Tip vouchers are not currently available to residents. While some local councils provide vouchers, they are often charged to all residents as part of their rates charges, and residents pay for the vouchers whether they use them or not.
Macedon Ranges Shire Council’s resource recovery facilities (transfer stations) run on a user-pays system, meaning that residents who don't attend the facilities are not subsidising those that do. This way, we are able to keep our fees low (among the lowest in Victoria).
