Waste and Recycling



The Waste and Environment Services Team is responsible for the maintenance and improvement of Buloke Shire’s landfills and transfer stations as well as providing residential kerbside garbage and recycling services in all townships within Buloke Shire.

What services are available?

Buloke Shire Council's Waste Services include:

  • Weekly kerbside waste collection service
  • Fortnightly kerbside recycling collection service
  • Public recycling and waste disposal facilities at Birchip, Charlton, Culgoa, Donald, Watchem, Wycheproof and Sea Lake Transfer Station
  • Street litter and public place recycling bins

Strategies for waste management in Buloke are not developed in isolation.  Buloke is a member of the Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery Group (LMWRRG), together with the municipalities of City of Greater Bendigo, Gannawarra and Loddon and Macedon Ranges Shire Councils, Mildura Rural City Council,  Mount Alexander Shire Council, Swan Hill Rural City Councils and Wakool Shire Council (Associate) (NSW). The Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery Group (LMWRRG) is a statutory body with responsibilities for regional waste management planning and coordination.  Planning for waste management in Buloke needs to consider the regional context, as well as Victorian and Commonwealth Government policies and regulations.
