The Rural City of Wangaratta operates Bowser Landfill¬†in Wangaratta‚Äôs North. The landfill is open to commercial operators only.
In recent years, community expectations regarding landfill management have required environmental standards to become more stringent.¬† This has increased the cost of sending waste to landfill and this trend will continue.¬† EPA recently increased landfill levies sharply, to reduce waste to landfill, increase recycling and create incentives for alternative waste treatment¬†such as¬†‚Äėwaste to energy‚Äô or composting.
It is important to reduce the waste going into Council's landfill.
Residents are able to dispose of green¬†waste at any transfer station for a fee of¬†$5.00 per cubic metre or $2.00 for a small load.
A quarterly calender¬†is delivered to all residents within the municipality detailing new and upgraded services, operating hours for transfer stations and garbage and recycling collection days.¬†
