What can and can’t I recycle at a drop-off facility?

  • Domestic rubbish and recycling is accepted.

  • Domestic quantities of co-mingled recycling is accepted free of charge, fees apply for disposal of commercial recycling

  • Hard waste and green waste is NOT accepted at drop off facilities. These can be disposed of at one of Council's waste transfer stations.

Cost of waste and recycling disposal

  • Charges for waste disposal at a waste transfer station of drop-off facility within the shire depends on the size of your load and what materials you have to dispose.

  • Waste disposal tickets are available from the Colac Otway Shire Council’s customer service centres. These tickets can be used at any waste transfer station or drop-off facility within the shire.

In the event of fire or extreme weather

  • Drop-off facilities and waste transfer stations will not operate on code red fire danger days. Rubbish and recycling collections will take place on the next available operating day.

  • Drop-off facilities and waste transfer stations might not operate on extreme weather days. Please check our website and social media pages, and listen to the local radio for information.

  • See the Council’s Waste Management Fire Danger Rating Plan for more information about waste management on extreme fire and weather days.
