Free green waste disposal in wake of storm
GREEN waste disposal will be free for Moyne Shire residents at council transfer stations for two weeks to help clean-up after last week’s storm.
Moyne mayor Cr Karen Foster said residents would be able to take their green waste to a council transfer station free of charge from September 15 to October 2.
“After last week’s storm we know there are plenty of people who have trees or branches down in their yards or on their properties and we’ve had people ask if free green waste is an option,” she said.
“If you can put your debris in your fortnightly green waste kerbside collection please do – but there is a lot of debris around and some which is larger than what can go in the kerbside bin - so we are offering free drop-off as an extra way of helping people clean up.
“The time frame covers two weekends, including the AFL grand final long weekend, so there is plenty of time for people to make use of the free drop-off.”
Cr Foster said the council would also offer another free green waste week in the coming months to help with fire season preparations.
Green waste can be disposed of for free at the Killarney, Mortlake, Peterborough, Hawkesdale, Caramut and Macarthur transfer stations.
Opening hours can be found online at www.moyne.vic.gov.au/waste as well as dates for kerbside collections.
Transfer station staff may also ask for some identification to confirm you are a Moyne Shire resident.
