South Gippsland Shire Council update early November 2021

South Gippsland Shire Council's annual Green Waste Amnesty has commenced and will run until 31 December.

By news@gippsland - 5th November 2021 - Back to News

You can dispose of your green waste for free at any of Council's transfer stations during this period. The amnesty aims to encourage residents to prepare their properties for the fire season by removing potential fire hazards.

Council is providing a green waste amnesty to help residents and ratepayers of the South Gippsland Shire clear fallen trees and debris from their properties

However, to improve the quality of the mulch produced, there are several species of weeds that are not accepted as green waste including:

  • Blackberry
  • Ragwort
  • Broom
  • Mirror Bush
  • Kikuyu Grass

Other plant species that are not included as green waste are:

  • Hawthorn
  • Cape Weed
  • Gorse
  • Blue Butterfly Bush
  • Pampas grass

Species that are difficult to mulch properly are also not included in the amnesty, such as palm fronds, Yuccas, Cordylines and other related species.

If any of these species are taken to a transfer station they must be disposed of as general waste with applicable disposal fees applying. Alternatively, any of these species can be disposed of through the kerbside green waste collection service as this material is subject to a different composting process.

To view the operating hours and locations of Council's transfer stations, visit the waste disposal facilities.
