When using the waste sites, please follow the correct procedures.
There are four areas for waste disposal:

• Waste Oil (Dumbleyung only)

• Green Waste

• Scrap Metal

• General Waste


If you have a mixed load and do not want to separate it, please dump in the General Waste section (Excludes Waste Oils).


Waste Oil: This is for waste oil only. Oil is to be poured into the tank. Empty containers are not to be left at the waste oil area, they should be disposed of in the general waste area. If the tank is full, please do not leave containers. We are only able to hold a limited amount of oil on site and fines apply if we exceed this. *Dumbleyung only, waste oil not allowed at the Kukerin Waste Site


Green Waste: This area is for organics capable of being burned only. Wood and non-flammable organics must be placed in the general waste trench.


Scrap Metal: This is for metal only. Anything that is not 100% metal should be placed in the general waste area. Fencing wire is not accepted anywhere at the waste sites.


General Waste: This is for all other waste including but not limited to household waste, wood, furniture and building rubble. If you have a mixed load and do not want to separate it, please place it in the general waste area. If you place it anywhere else, it increases the cost of running the waste sites as the shire will need to move it.
