RATES NOTICE TIPPING VOUCHERS 

Instead of a hard waste collection, we provide resource recovery centre vouchers each year with your rates notice. 

At the bottom of each rates notice, there is a barcode that can be scanned up to three times at any of our Resource Recovery Centres. Each scan is worth $20 and the vouchers expires on 30 September each year.

Vouchers can be taken to one of our Resource Recovery Centres where our operators will assess your load based on our standard resident/ratepayers fees and charges. If the value of your load exceeds the value of your tip ticket an additional payment will be required.

We reserve the right to refuse loads if they contain hazardous materials and/or are in excess of 4m³.

Terms and Conditions

  • Only original vouchers will be accepted (no photocopies)
  • Proof of ID  (driver licence or rates notice showing your property address in Mitchell Shire) may be requested
  • Vouchers are not transferable for cash
  • Vouchers cannot be redeemed or used for payment of any other Council account
  • Vouchers will not be replaced if lost or destroyed
  • Vouchers must not be resold or transferred
  • Any waste loads in excess of the voucher value shall be charged the applicable fee difference

not accepted at resource recovery centres

  • Soluble chemical wastes

GREEN WASTE AND MULCH 

We can accept tree trimmings, bushes and other garden waste at our resource recovery centres. Please ensure your garden waste is free from contamination such as garbage, wire, metals, etc. Collected garden waste is stored at the relevant sites and ground into a coarse mulch that is available for free to residents.

Natural wood and tree branches (under 300mm diameter) and grass clippings will need to be sorted from non- green waste items before arrival and  green waste must be free of declared noxious weeds, so it can be re-used as mulch. Any loads containing items other than green waste will be charged accordingly. 

Subject to availability, you can also pick up mulch from the Wallan Resource Recovery Centre for free.  


eWASTE

E-waste is a term used to describe unwanted electronic goods such as computers, televisions and DVD players. By recycling e-waste, 98 per cent of the materials are recovered and recycled to be used in the manufacturing of new products. E-waste can be deposited at all of Council’s Resource Recovery Centres for free.


Reuse Shop

Council operates a Reuse Shop at the Wallan Resource Recovery Centre on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am - 4pm.

This shop resells many household items that can still be used such as:

  • Furniture                                                                                                     
  • Toys                                                                                                           
  • Books, records, CDs                                                                                 
  • Gardening items
