Free green waste disposal


To help prepare for the fire season, we are offering a free green waste disposal weekend at the Beechworth and Rutherglen transfer stations on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 October 2019.

This service is for Indigo Shire residents only.

Only green waste will be accepted. Items include:

  • Garden waste
  • Leaf litter
  • Tree prunings

To ensure Council can produce a quality product after the waste has been mulched/processed the green waste needs to be free from contamination when dropped off.

The main source of contamination found in the green waste is treated pine and wooden furniture, please ensure these items as well as any other waste items aren’t mixed with the green waste load.

Contaminated loads will incur a waste disposal charge and can not be mulched.

Council operates two Transfer Stations to service the shire.  These sites are continuously being improved to meet the needs of the community, regulatory requirement and better practice operations.  Council is no longer in a position to offer a green waste collection service at former waste sites at Chiltern and Yackandandah.  Residents may use their waste disposal voucher to drop off green waste at Beechworth, Rutherglen, Wodonga or Tallangatta Transfer Stations during operation hours at any time of the year.
