Keen to reduce your footprint on landfill waste?
Central Goldfields Shire Council offers to all residents in the urban areas of Dunolly, Talbot, Carisbrook and Maryborough an optional green waste and household organics collection service.
Residents can dispose of their garden green waste and organic household waste via a 240 litre green waste mobile bin which is collected two times a month (First and third Friday of the month).
The service costs $72 from December 2017 to November 2018 which is charged separately to the rates on the property.
The collected waste is then processed at the Carisbrook Transfer Station into high quality bagged compost. As a bonus to the service each participant is entitled to four bags of compost free of charge per month, when available (there is no guarantee of supply).
To request the service you can visit the Council Office at 48 Nolan Street to collect a form or download one online at www.centralgoldfields.com.au Alternatively, please contact Central Goldfields Shire on 5461 0607.
