Helping our community groups

Central Goldfields Shire is home to a myriad of community groups, many of which utilise Council-owned or managed buildings and recreational land.

It is important for community groups to have a clear understanding how to access and utilise resources available to them, to be aware of any costs involved, how maintenance issues can be reported, who the person of responsibility is, how Council can support your group and to help our community groups be more sustainable and efficient.

Council has great resources that can support your group and help our community groups be more sustainable and efficient.

This is why Council has recently developed a number of draft policies to invite community feedback and is working towards a clearer, fairer and more transparent process for all community members.

The draft policies we would like your feedback on include:

  • Draft Community Support Policy
  • Draft Casual Hire Policy
  • Draft Property Occupancy Policy

We also have the following documents out for consultation:

  • Waste Management Strategy
  • Economic Development and Tourism Strategy
  • Gordon Gardens Masterplan

To view these documents, and to find out how to provide feedback, visit

A new place to put your e-waste

From 1 July 2019, all Central Goldfields Shire residents can dispose of their e-waste free of charge, with the exception of televisions, 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, plug or a battery attached.

This initiative will help reduce e-waste ending in landfill and minimise our impact on the environment.
