A Garden waste and scrap metal drop-off day will take place in Ellesmere

Saturday 25 November, 10am–4pm at Cemetery Pit, 240 Southbridge Leeston Road.

This is a good chance to clean up your backyard and garden and drop off garden waste and scrap metal to a local collection point.

Garden prunings, tree trimmings and weeds will be accepted, as well as metals, bicycles, BBQs, small appliances, whiteware, tins, pots and pans. We don’t accept general rubbish, flax, cabbage tree leaves, trees/branches over 10cm diameter, gas bottles, items containing oil/fuel, TVs, or tyres. Please separate metal and garden waste. Only household amounts of garden waste will be accepted (not commercial volumes).

Scrap metal drop off is free.

Garden waste costs $5 per car, $10 per ute or single axle trailer or $15 per twin axle trailer.

Cash only (no EFTPOS). Proceeds from gate fees will be donated to the Ellesmere Heritage Park.
