Landfill and Recycling

The shire has two landfill recycling sites that are available for the disposal of household waste, waste is only accepted from within the Shire of Chittering and must be sorted ready for recycling.

Please refer to each site for what they will accept and their opening times.

Each resident receives a 12 month tip pass with their Shire rates and new residents will receive their tip pass in their Shire "Welcome Pack". This pass is to be used for household waste and recyclables ONLY - not bulk commercial waste.
