Village and rural waste

Community Meetings

Council has now been operating its five rural transfer stations (Ballimore, Eumungerie, Geurie, Stuart Town and Toongi) for approximately six months under the new opening hours.

To provide further information to residents, there will be two community meetings which you will be able to attend. Council will be following strict COVIDSafe guidelines for both meetings, and as a result, each participant will be required to register their interest by obtaining a ticket for the event.
