Green waste disposal
Green waste (vegetation) must be separated and placed on the designated green waste stockpile:
- Maximum diameter 500mm.
- Maximum length 4m.
Green waste must be contaminant-free as it will be shredded for beneficial reuse. No timber products, fencing wire, pot plants, gyprock or fibre cement sheeting.
Oversized green waste (such as stumps, root balls) exceeding 500mm in width must be placed in a separate area near the green waste stockpile. Because oversized green waste requires additional processing, disposal charges are higher.
Council will not accept bulk quantities of green waste at our waste management facilities (i.e. multiple large loads e.g. from developments, block-clearing). In these circumstances, the waste generator should consider other options such as:
- on-site shredding by a green waste shredding company and reuse for landscaping/erosion control;
- removal to another site (operated by a green waste shredding company or firewood business);
