What is recyclable in Hepburn Shire?
Council provides a fortnightly kerbside collection (yellow lidded bins) service to the townships of Clunes, Creswick, Daylesford, Glenlyon, Hepburn Springs and Trentham and also some rural areas. Recycling is also collected at the three transfer stations (fees apply).
At our three transfer stations we recycle as much as possible, meaning less waste to landfill and the money that is made from recovering recyclables and selling reusable items at the recycle shop goes back into employing more staff from the local area. You can donate any reusable household items or building materials to the tip shop for free.
Please remember to pack your trailer so that recyclables and waste are clearly separated. It helps if like materials are grouped together and attendants can easily see what you have. Please make sure you don’t bring your recycling in a plastic bag, as this is not recyclable.
A more detailed Hepburn Shire Council A – Z bin guide is coming soon.
