WASTE COLLECTION SERVICES IN GOLDEN PLAINS SHIRE
Golden Plains Shire Council provides residents with a fortnightly waste service and a weekly recycling service.
This website aims to provide you with a comprehensive guide to the waste and recycling services available to residents and provides information on how everyone can work towards reducing household waste and the amount of waste going into landfill.
Up to 50% of most people’s waste consists of green organics, including grass clippings and vegetable scraps. This material can be readily composted and converted into a valuable soil additive. Also keeping chickens is a great way to use your vegetable scraps and you have the added bonus of fresh eggs. Diverting this material from landfill also helps our environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, see the Waste Minimisation Suggestions page for more information.
