Green Waste Disposal Program Update

Posted Friday 26 November, 11:13am

Due to delivery delays, Council’s Fire Preparedness Brochure containing two free green waste disposal vouchers will now be available for collection at various locations across the municipality.

Council wants to ensure residents and ratepayers can easily access the free Green Waste Vouchers ahead of the fire ready season (29 November – 19 December 2021).

Residents can pick up a brochure at the following access points:

  • Elmhurst Post Office;
  • Pomonal Store;
  • Moyston General Store;
  • Willaura Post Office;
  • Lake Bolac Post Office;
  • Tatyoon Gorst Rural;
  • Ararat Visitor Information Centre;
  • Ararat Council Municipal Office/Customer Service desk; and
  • Any of Ararat Rural City Council’s eight transfer stations

Each voucher offers residents the opportunity to dispose of up to 1 cubic metre of green waste at Council’s Transfer Stations in Ararat, Elmhurst, Lake Bolac, Moyston, Pomonal, Tatyoon, Streatham and Willaura between 29 November to 19 December 2021.

Green waste taken to the Transfer Station must be separate from other rubbish. Please note drop-offs exceeding the one cubic metre of green waste or any other items will be charged regular disposal rates. If you have any further questions, contact Emergency Management Coordinator Joel Farrow, on 5355 0283.
