Green waste

Council has continued with their green waste collection service within the townships of Avoca and Beaufort which has also been widely accepted by the community.

  • A 240 litre bin with a lime green lid was provided to households within the serviced areas.
  • The green waste bin service has improved the ability for residents of Avoca and Beaufort to remove greenwaste from their property.

This service has allowed for the recovery and use of greenwaste by the capping of old tip sites and use around existing transfer stations with weed reduction, reducing greenhouse gas liability, and reducing contamination of recyclables.

Approximately 900 cubic meters of greenwaste is collected annually.
