Check With Your Local Council About Waste & Recycling

Gippsland’s six shire councils continue to offer waste services to residents during regional Victoria’s Stage 3 Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions.

During this time, Councils will be providing their services in line with State Government directions to ensure the health and well-being of staff and members of the community.

If you’re not serviced by kerbside collection, please check with your local council for information regarding the operation and hours of waste disposal facilities.

IMPORTANTLY – Stage 3 Stay at Home restrictions are now in place for GIPPSLAND.

There are only 4 reasons to leave home.

– Shopping for food and supplies that you need.

– Care and caregiving.

– Exercise.

– Work and study if you can’t do it from home.


If you’re out you must wear a face covering. If you have symptoms, get tested then stay home.

Customers to Bass Coast Shire tips will be required to show ID proving their status as local residents.

Under changes designed to restrict travel and protect staff, Bass Coast Shire Council’s bin caddy liner pickup program has also been put on hold for the duration of the lockdown.

People are being encourage to avoid attending waste facilities unless for:

  • Businesses and commercial waste disposal; or

  • Waste disposal for Bass Coast residents who do not receive a kerbside collection service.

Proof of residence must now be provided when attending any of Bass Coast’s waste facilities – this can be in the form of a driver’s licence, rates notice, utility bill or similar.
