Published on 08 April 2021

Pyrenees Shire Council has arranged a hard rubbish collection for the townships of Beaufort and Avoca. The dates of the collections are:

Beaufort  – Saturday, 15th May 2021

Avoca – Saturday, 22nd May 2021

Please note the following:

  • Materials for collection must not be placed on your nature strip more than two days before the collection date.
  • No material must block footpaths, everything must be on the nature strip.
