Hard rubbish collection

Hard rubbish

There is no hard rubbish collection in Macedon Ranges Shire. 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 transfer stations, Kyneton Tip Shop and Op Shops for increasing reuse and recycling of materials.

Tip vouchers

Tip Vouchers are not currently available to residents; and although 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 Centres (transfer stations) run on a user pays system, meaning that residents who do not attend the centres are not subsidising those that do, and that we are able to keep our fees among the lowest in Victoria.
