Rubbish and Recycling

Waste and recycling is important to the City of Greater Bendigo. To this end we provide a weekly garbage collection and fortnightly recycling collection.

We want your recycling to go to a better place

Throughout the Bendigo region more and more recycling bins will be popping up in parks, gardens, sporting grounds and public places.

It is important to limit the amount of recycling which ends up in landfill. That’s why the City is installing public place recycling bins in high traffic areas throughout the Greater Bendigo region.

The new bins are specially designed to take all recycling including plastic and glass bottles, drink cans, paper, take-away coffee cups, even empty pizza boxes.

When you’re out and about, look out for public place recycling bins because we want your recycling to go to a better place!

Get it Right on Bin Night

The City is supporting Get it Right on Bin Night, an initiative of Sustainability Victoria which aims to increase the amount of recycling by Victorian households.

Loddon Mallee Waste & Resource Recovery Group

Recently, the Waste Management Groups in Victoria were restructured by amalgamating the 12 existing Waste Management Groups into 6 new groups. This has meant that the Calder Regional Waste Management Group, of which the City of Greater Bendigo was a member council, has now amalgamated with the Central Murray Waste Management Group and the Mildura Regional Waste Management Group forming the Loddon Mallee Waste & Resource Recovery Group covering 9 local government areas.

The new Loddon Mallee Waste & Resource Recovery Group Board consists of 4 councillor directors with Cr Barry Lyons as chairperson, Cr Neville Goulding, Cr Geoff Curnow and Cr John Arnold and 4 skill based directors, Russell Anderson, Brian Fox-Lane, Julie Green and Owen Russell.

Watch this space for further updates and links to the Loddon Mallee Waste & Resource Recovery Group once they are fully established.
