Waste Collection Services
 

The Shire offers a range of Waste collection services both to residents and to commercial premises.  Other services include skip and waste cage hire and green waste skip bins in various locations around the residential parts of the island. Domestic garbage is collected twice weekly.


Waste Minimisation


At present the Shire does not operate waste minimisation and recycling strategies. The development of effective strategies will require community participation and cooperation and island residents are encouraged to start considering how they may individually contribute towards waste reduction within their own households.
