Extra Waste Collection Services

This year, the Wye River community has deposited approximately 8 tonnes of green waste and approximately 5 tonnes has been deposited by the Kennett River community with no waste contamination in either of the skips.

Our extra green waste collection may have finished, but the Colac Otway Shire Council's extra recycling collection, and free glass drop-off, will begin in December.

Extra Recycling Collection Services

Council’s weekly recycling (yellow lid) kerbside collection will be happening again, commencing in December:

  • Monday 19 December for Week Two collection areas (finishing Friday 20 January, 2023), and
  • Monday 26 December for Week One collection areas (finishing Friday 27 January, 2023).

When you put your green bin out, put your yellow bin out too.

Stay informed about your waste collection service by downloading the Good Sort App.
