Follow Your Waste tours

Have you ever wondered what happens to your recycling, household rubbish and garden waste once it leaves your kerb? Would you like to learn more about reducing your waste going to landfill and how to become a better recycler?

The Follow your Waste tours allow the community to visit the Polytrade Recycling Facility, a landfill site and a garden waste composting facility. To check if there are any tours coming up, visit the  waste education events page  or email wasteevents@cgd.vic.gov.au to be notified of the next tour.

Waste and recycling workshops

Council hosts a number of waste workshops each year.

They are a great opportunity to learn how to reduce what you send to landfill in a hands-on environment.

The workshops cover a range of themes, including:

  • Reuse art
  • Composting and worm farming
  • Reducing food waste
  • Waste reduction
  • Ethical decluttering
