Waste Management

Domestic garbage is collected in village zones within Balranald Shire Council.  Designated collection days are:

  • Balranald: Monday
  • Euston: Friday

Wheelie bins are required to be placed on the kerbside the night before collection day to guarantee collection. Collection times may vary on the allocated day.

Please don’t over fill your bin

Balranald and Euston residents are reminded to not overfill your bin.  The lid should be able to fully close.

Although Balranald Shire doesn’t offer a full recycling facility, Council’s landfill site uses separate areas for waste materials and encourage residents to separate their materials when visiting the site.

Landfill is categorised into the following areas:

Mixed waste is general household materials

Green waste is free to Council residents at local landfill sites, and Council encourages residents to transfer their own green waste during opening hours.

Plastics and Aluminium cans may be deposited in the receptors provided at the entrance and are also free to Council residents.

Metals have their own area and may be deposited in a specific site

Building materials have their own area and may be deposited in a specific site.
