Get fire ready with fee-free green waste disposal
If you live, or own a property, in Bass Coast - now is the perfect time to start cleaning up your yard in preparation for the upcoming fire season.
Bass Coast Shire Council’s annual fee-free green waste disposal period will be held from Saturday, 2 November until Sunday, 24 November, to help with the clean-up.
Residents and property owners can dispose of domestic sized loads of green waste at Council’s Transfer Stations at Grantville, Wonthaggi and Inverloch and at the Cowes Recycling Bank.
Facility locations and opening times are available at www.basscoast.vic.gov.au/wastefacilities.
Some weed species and plants cannot be mulched including Blackberry, English Ivy, Agapanthus, Mirror Bush and palm fronds, and are not included in the fee free period, however they can go in your kerbside Organics (green lid) bin.
High demand for the service can result in queues and delays, particularly on the first weekend, so disposing of your green waste in the middle of the fee free period may help you avoid delays.
In periods of high demand, a facility may close 30 minutes before the scheduled closing time, to allow for the unloading of vehicles already on site. This will help ensure operations do not extend beyond the closing time.
