Kerbside waste and recycling services

Northern Grampians Shire Council provides a kerbside garbage and recycling collection service for townships and along rural collection routes.

Waste and recycling bins should be placed out for collection the night prior to your collection date. Bins should be kept half a metre apart and no further than one metre from the kerbside.

This form must be completed by the ratepayer of the property or a person duly authorised by that ratepayer.

Council’s service is a dual service (120L waste bin and 240L recycling bin). 

Bins belong to Northern Grampians Shire Council and must not be removed from the property. 

Council charges an annual service fee, therefore the full-service charge ($467) will be applied to the rates. This charge is applicable for the 2019-20 financial year ending 30 June 2020, regardless of when you request the service.
