To help our community prepare and maintain their properties over the fire season, Baw Baw Shire Council is offering free green waste drop-off of up to 3 cubic metres at all Council-operated transfer stations in Lardner, Trafalgar, Neerim South and Erica until 31 March.
Free offer conditions:
Each household is eligible to drop off up to three cubic metres of acceptable green waste free of charge.
To cater for different trailer sizes, residents can either drop off three cubic metres at once, or smaller volumes over multiple drop offs.
Green waste over three cubic metres will be charged at the normal rate.
Bookings are not required, simply visit the transfer station during open hours and present proof of residency (such as driver’s license or rates notice).
Green waste must be delivered in residential vehicles and trailers (commercial vehicles will be charged at the standard rate).
Green waste must be separated from other waste or it will be charged at the standard rate.
This offer is available to all residents – both home owners and tenants.
This offer is of particular importance to those living on larger or rural properties with excess growth and vegetation around their homes - over and above what can be disposed of in the regular fortnightly
kerbside green waste bin collections.
This new initiative is part of Council's commitment to community safety and bushfire season preparedness.
