Residents are reminded that changes will apply to bin collection dates across Campaspe Shire during the festive season.

Campaspe Shire Council’s waste and recycling service providers, Ellwaste and Cleanaway, have changed collection days for households and businesses that normally have rubbish, recycling or greenwaste collected on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.

The changes will affect businesses and households in parts of Kyabram, Rushworth, Stanhope, Tongala, Echuca, Rochester and Lockington township as well as Lancaster, Koyuga, Wyuna Gunbower, Torrumbarry, Nanneella, Strathallan, Colbinabbin, Corop and surrounding areas.

Campaspe Shire bin collection days will change from:

Wednesday, December 25, to Thursday, December 26.

Thursday, December 26, to Friday, December 27.

Friday, December 27, to Saturday, December 28.

Wednesday, January 1, to Thursday, January 2.

Friday, January 3, to Saturday, January 4.

Cr Carol Howell encouraged residents to make a note of the change.

“It won’t be the end of the world if you forget about this change; you’ll just notice your bin wasn’t emptied and have to leave it out for the next night,” she said.

There is no change to Monday and Tuesday collections.

If for some reason a collection is missed, residents can take their rubbish to the Mt Scobie Transfer Station, or to transfer stations at Colbinabbin, Echuca, Gunbower, Lockington, Rochester, Rushworth and Toolleen for a fee.
