Resource and Waste Calendar

In an effort to reduce waste to landfill, this year’s Resource and Waste Calendar will not be delivered to households within the region. 

You will be able to download a copy of the full booklet from Council’s website, or pick up a hard copy from all of Council’s administration offices, resource and waste facilities and Visitor Information Centres.

Council estimates that a diversion of more than 10,000 plastic sleeves will be achieved with the move to not posting these booklets to residents. This is to prevent any unnecessary wastage and creates better waste diversion. 

Residents within the region will continue to have their Domestic Waste, Recycling and Food & Garden Organics (where applicable) kerbside bins collected as per scheduled collection days.

  • Weekly Waste kerbside collection
  • Fortnightly Recycling kerbside collection
  • Fortnightly Food & Garden Organics (where applicable) kerbside collection
