Council is committed to providing residents with efficient waste management and recycling services.
Our Waste Collection Service is provided by our contractor Solo Resource Recovery to all households in townships and some properties in the rural areas.
The new waste collection contract commenced on 1 October 2012 and includes a fortnightly green organics collection with the residential service.
Commencing a new rubbish service
Property owners who would like a new rubbish service should visit one of our Customer Service Centres at Warragul, Drouin or Trafalgar where you will be required to complete an application form and pay the pro-rata rubbish charge to 30 June 2013.
For further information please telephone Council on 5624 2411.

The commercial service does not include a green organics collection. If a commercial property owner would like a fortnightly green organics collection the additional cost is $69.00 per year.
Please contact Solo Resource Recovery to report a missing or damaged bin on 5633 2009.
