Green waste bin

Green waste in urban areas

Council offers households an opt-in fortnightly collection service for green waste in Bacchus Marsh, Darley, Maddingley, Hopetoun Park, and Ballan.

To subscribe, you will need to purchase a 240 litre bin with a lime green lid from Council. If you wish to opt-out at any time, simply notifying us in writing.

What happens to your green waste?

Greenwaste is taken to Pinegro right here in the Shire. It is turned into a compost available at hardware stores.
