Green Waste

Green waste is great for generating compost which can be re-used on gardens. 

Since nearly half of all household waste is food scraps and garden waste, composting bins and worm farms provide a great way of not only diverting waste from landfill but creating nutrient rich compost for your garden and vegetable patches. In addition, residents can also dispose of green waste in the following ways:

  • Via the residential Skip Bin Service 
  • Walliston Transfer Station -
    Each resident/ratepayer is given unlimited access to the Walliston Transfer Station for green and recyclable waste. An Entry Pass and Photo ID (e.g. driver’s licence) showing proof of residence is required to use this facility.

Accepted items include

  • green waste
  • palm fronds
  • tree pruning’s
  • grass clippings
  • tree trunks (diameter no greater than 300mm).
