Waste Management Initiatives

Free Green Waste Disposal

Property owners are encouraged to clean up their properties in preparation for the Fire Danger Season.
To support the clean-up campaign, Council will have FREE green waste disposal at Millicent, Penola and Beachport Waste Transfer Stations from 1 October to 30 November 2017.
A waste disposal voucher will not be required for loads that only contain approved green waste and are presented by Wattle Range residents and ratepayers.
Residents are reminded to work within the requirements of the Native Vegetation Act and seek advice if they are unsure.

• A waste disposal voucher will not be required for loads that only contain approved green waste 
• Approved green waste is limited to tree limbs and branches, grass clippings and weeds.
• No painted or treated timber will be accepted.
• If any waste other than green waste is included in the load, a voucher will still be required.
• All loads must be presented by a Wattle Range Council resident or ratepayer.
• All users must prove they are a ratepayer or resident by showing a current rates notice or driver’s licence with a Wattle Range Council address.
• No green waste is accepted at Glencoe and Furner.

Free Garden Mulch Available

Residents and ratepayers can get trailer loads of garden mulch for free at Penola and Millicent subject to availability. 

This organic material is a natural product made from the garden waste dropped off at Council’s Resource Recovery Centre from Wattle Range residents and businesses. The mulch available does not meet industry standards for a saleable mulch product and is therefore available at no cost.

Those taking advantage of the opportunity will need to bring a tarpaulin and suitable rope to secure the load before exiting the site. A disclaimer will also need to be signed prior to collection.

As the organic material may contain plant seed, sharp and splintery objects, dusts and allergens, Council strongly recommends the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when handling this material. PPE should include heavy duty gloves, long sleeved shirt and pants, safety glasses and dust mask or other respiratory aids.
