Green Waste Burn


08 May 2023

The stockpile of green waste at the Transfer Station has reached capacity and requires a scheduled burn off.

This will occur on May 9 from 10am.

DFES, Volunteer Brigade and Shire Officers will be in attendance during the activity.

These burn offs are an efficient cost saving measure for the Council. In the past we have paid to have a mulcher brought in twice a year to deal with the green waste, however due to a significant increase in the amount of green waste we are receiving this is no longer viable.

As the stack to be burnt is large the Transfer Station could be closed for 48 hours. The Container Deposit Scheme will remain open for drop-offs during the burn (subject to wind direction).

Please call 9927 0000 or email for further information. 

Shane Ivers

Chief Executive Officer
