Green waste drop-off

Our resource recovery facilities accept a variety of green waste all year round. Fees apply to some types of green waste, non-residents and commercial operators.

To access the free green waste drop-off service you must be a ratepayer or tenant within the Macedon Ranges and provide evidence of residence (e.g. an original rates notice or driver's licence).

We accept leaf litter, lawn clippings and prunings that can be turned into mulch. Loads must be free of weeds, wire, food scraps and other rubbish.

General waste fees apply for the following:

  • Weeds
  • Large branches with a diameter greater than 250mm
  • Agapanthus
  • Succulents
  • Yucca
  • Ivy
  • Willow
  • Broome
  • Gorse
  • Blackberry
  • Rose prunings
  • Long grass
  • Flax
  • Bamboo

Noxious weeds can be placed in your FOGO (Food Organics Garden Organics) bin and are turned into compost.
