Colac Otway Shire aims to effectively manage and continually improve the integrated waste management service to provide best value for the Colac Otway Shire community.

The waste management services are based around the Waste Management Best Value Review carried out in 2008.

Colac Otway Shire aims to work within the framework of State Government legislation and targets for waste minimisation together with a balance for service expectations within the community.

Colac Otway Shire introduces a new three bin system which will meet with state best practice and Australian standard bin colours.

Did you know that plastic bags are not recyclable in your kerbside collection and items enclosed in them are considered to be contaminates as well.

For more information on any of the waste services listed on this website, please contact Council's Waste Management Officer, Janet Forbes on 5232 9400.
