Baw Baw Shire Council is offering free green waste drop-offs at our transfer stations in Lardner, Neerim South, Erica and Trafalgar to help you prepare for the upcoming fire season.

Before heading to your nearest transfer station, please read the important details in the drop down section below, then select a transfer station that suits you to find out what dates are available.

All the important information

  • Each household (residents and tenants) is eligible to drop off up to 3 cubic metres of acceptable green waste.
  • Simply visit the transfer station during open hours and present proof of residency. See below for drop off dates and times.
  • Proof of residency includes a driver’s licence plus: ratepayers need to provide a rates notice, and tenants need to provide a utility bill.
  • Acceptable green waste includes tree debris, branches, foliage, and general green waste. The maximum size limit for a large branch, log or stump is 30cm round and 1m long. No large tree stumps will be accepted.
  • To cater for different trailer sizes, residents can either drop off 3 cubic metres at once, or smaller volumes over multiple drop offs.
  • Green waste must be delivered in residential vehicles and trailers (commercial vehicles will be charged at the standard rate).
  • Green waste over 3 cubic metres will be charged at the normal rate.
  • Green waste must be separated from other waste or it will be charged at the standard rate.
  • Please be patient – whilst there will be additional infrastructure and staff on site, the transfer stations will be busy. Residents with residual waste or recyclables are encouraged to reconsider visiting the transfer stations on these dates to avoid delays.
