Free green waste disposal in Bass Coast Shire from 29 October to 20 November 2022 to help with pruning over spring season
Bass Coast Shire Council's annual fee-free green waste disposal period will run from Saturday, 29 October until Sunday, 20 November.
This annual fee-free green waste disposal service is provided each year, to encourage landowners to prepare for the fire season. During this time, Bass Coast residents and ratepayers can dispose of green waste free of charge at council's Transfer Stations at Grantville, Wonthaggi, and Inverloch, and at the Cowes Recycling Bank. Locations and operating hours of our Waste Facilities are available at Bass Coast Waste Facilities page.
Cowes Recycling Bank will only accept loads of green waste up to the standard 6x4 caged trailer during this year's fee-free disposal period
Safe and manageable disposal
To ensure safe and manageable disposal of green waste for staff and the public, Cowes Recycling Bank will only accept loads up to a maximum size of 2m square or a standard 6x4 caged trailer. Loads larger than this are unable to be accepted and will be redirected to Grantville or Wonthaggi during this period. Entry to the Cowes Recycling Bank will be via The Concourse end of Dunsmore Road rather than the Settlement Road end, to assist with management of traffic.
High demand for this service can result in queues and delays, particularly on the first weekend. Disposing of your green waste in the middle of the fee-free period may help you avoid delays. Weed species including blackberry, English ivy, agapanthus, mirror bush and plants that cannot be mulched such as palm fronds are not included in the fee-free period, however these can go in your kerbside Organics (green lid) bin at any time.
