Council's Green Waste Amnesty period begins on Saturday 2 November and will finish at the end of December.

Until Tuesday 31 December residents can dispose of their green waste for free at any of Council’s transfer stations.

Council offers this service to encourage residents and holiday home owners to get ready for the fire season each year by removing overhanging limbs, dry leaves and cutting long grass.

Blackberry, Ragwort, Broom, Mirror Bush, Kikuyu Grass, Hawthorn, Cape Weed, Gorse, Pampas Grass, Palm fronds, Cordylines, Yuccas and related species are not included in the amnesty. These must be disposed of in the general waste and the applicable disposal fees paid.
