Free domestic greenwaste disposal at Eaglehawk and Heathcote

Leave feedback

It’s time for residents to prepare for the hot summer months by cleaning up around their properties before the fire danger period arrives.

Greater Bendigo residents can now dispose of their green waste for free all year round at the City of Greater Bendigo’s Eaglehawk Eco Centre/Landfill and the Heathcote Transfer Station.

City of Greater Bendigo Presentation and Assets Director Debbie Wood said with residents now able to dispose of their excess domestic green waste all year round for free, there really is no excuse not to be prepared for summer.

“While residents are using their organics bins, this time of the year can cause many residents have excess green waste to get rid of,” Ms Wood said.

“The fire danger period generally commences at the start of December subject to weather conditions and although that may seem a way off, it’s time to prepare for this around the home.

“Residents who take the time to keep their properties clear of vegetation will help minimise fire risk during the summer months and decrease the amount of work they need to do in the garden.”

Only green waste from residential properties will be accepted free of charge.  Commercial vehicles will be charged a disposal fee.

The Eaglehawk Eco Centre and Landfill is open daily from 8am until 4.00pm (Monday to Friday and 8am to 4.30pm on weekends.  The Heathcote Transfer Station is open from 8am to 5pm Wednesday, Thursday Saturday and Sunday.
