Green Waste & Hard Waste
A specific area is provided at local transfer stations for residents to drop off green waste such as tree branches, grass and leaf litter (for a cost – see Transfer Station Fees). The waste is converted into composted mulch. Mulch is usually available at transfer stations at no cost – it must be loaded so please call ahead to see when this service is available.
During November each year, Council accepts green waste from residents free of charge. This service encourages residents to clean up their properties in readiness for the bushfire season.
Please note commercial quantities of green waste are not accepted at transfer stations.
Currently Transfer Stations are accepting storm related green waste for free (extended until Sunday 29 August, 2021. Residents must show proof of address, and the green waste must be storm related – i.e. not grass clippings.
Hard waste, such as furniture, bicycles and mowers can be taken to transfer stations – please see Transfer Station Fees for associated costs with some items. Reusable items are recovered for resale.
Clunes Township has a hard waste collection once per year (usually around August). Details are sent to residents in the weeks leading up to the collection.
In 2021 the Clunes hard waste collection will be in the week commencing Monday 30 August, 2021 – more details here.
