A new place to put your e-waste
From 1 July, 2019, all Central Goldfields Shire residents can dispose of their e-waste at any of the local transfer stations at Carisbrook, Talbot, Dunolly and Bealiba.
Smaller e-waste items can also be delivered to a sorting storage unit at Council’s Customer Service Centre at 22 Nolan Street, Maryborough, Maryborough Resource Centre and Talbot Post Office.
E-waste is any unwanted product that has a cord or a battery attached.
This initiative will help reduce e-waste ending in landfill and minimise our impact on the environment.

Waste engagement community launch
We launched our community engagement for our 2019-2024 Waste Management Strategy this week at the Maryborough Community Garden, located at the Goldfields Employment and Learning Centre.
We are undertaking community consultation about how waste services can be managed better.
Community members can leave their feedback via three specific surveys which will assist in the development of the 2019-2024 Waste Management Strategy by outlining how waste to landfill can be reduced, deliver behaviour change to reduce waste to landfill, increase recycling and expand organic waste recovery.
The surveys focus on rural households, commercial, industry and residents and waste can be found at www.centralgoldfields.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay
