Free green waste month
Hindmarsh Shire Council is waiving fees for its residents to drop off green waste throughout September.
Residents in Dimboola, Jeparit, Nhill and Rainbow can drop off green waste at their town’s transfer stations free of charge for the 30 days.
Mayor Ron Ismay said the initiative was aimed at encouraging residents to tidy their yards prior to the fire-danger period in spring and summer.
“The spring weather not only improves our wellbeing, but is a great opportunity for residents to clean up their properties,” he said.
COVID-19 restrictions could affect transfer station opening times.
