General Waste, Recycling and Organics
The City of Greater Bendigo is working hard to reduce waste. We are doing this by making it easier for you to recycle, prevent organic and green waste going into the bin, and diverting e-waste, hard rubbish and chemicals from the landfill.
Residents can get rid of other waste at our landfills (tips) and recycling centres and participate in programs that dispose of e-waste and hard rubbish, household chemicals and farm chemical containers safely.
Our new organics service aims to divert organic waste from our local landfill sites to reduce the associated costs, avoid the production of methane gases and odours, and produce compost.
Free green waste disposal weekends
The City currently provides residents with free green waste disposal throughout the year. On these dates, residents can drop off their green waste at the Eaglehawk Eco-Centre or the Heathcote Landfill free of charge.
Please note the only materials that will be accepted are tree prunings, garden clippings, grass and leaf litter. Commercial loads of green waste will not be accepted.
Free green waste disposal weekends were held in April and May 2017. Future dates are yet to be determined.
