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.

The Resource Recovery & Education Code of Practice as referred to in Community Local Law 2.1 requires that residents use the council-provided bins for collection correctly. This includes separating recycling and omitting hazardous waste (syringes, hot ash, liquid waste etc.), or leaving bins in the street other than on collection day.  Bins in commercial zones must not be outside the property boundary between 10.00am & 5.30pm on any day. 

 

We welcome your feedback.
