Did you know there is an easy and environmentally beneficial alternative to throwing your household batteries in the garbage?
Composting at home has a major role to play in reducing the amount of material that is currently going to landfill and is a great way for single person or family to reduce their impact on the environment.
Unwanted chemicals may harm the environment when you pour them down the sink or put them in the rubbish bin. Detox Your Home allows you to dispose of these chemicals safely.
Greater Shepparton City Council is committed to the State Government's Towards Zero Waste targets for garbage reduction to landfill and as such offers residents a three bin kerbside collection service. This incorporates a weekly garbage and alternating fortnightly recycling and green organics collections. Click here to check your collection day.

Transfer stations (resource recovery centres) accept domestic quantities of household waste and recyclables. The waste accepted at the transfer station must be suitable for landfill and can therefore not include any liquid waste, chemicals or hazardous wastes.
The Cosgrove Landfill is the sole landfill in Greater Shepparton and is open only to commercial customers.
