Waste management is an area of core business for all councils. It encompasses all activities and services that revolve around collecting, disposing and reducing waste. In dealing with waste management, Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) uses the most effective technologies and methods available while also striving to protect environmental and public health.

Council is committed to delivering effective and efficient service to all residents, including the townships of Cootamundra and Gundagai, the villages in the municipality and the rural landholders.


At the ordinary meeting of Council held on Tuesday 28 September 2021, Council has adopted the Domestic Rural Waste Initiatives put forward by the Manager Waste, Parks and Recreation Services. The initiative has been developed in response to rural community residents’ inquiries regarding free waste disposal and access to the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) landfill sites for domestic waste.

By adopting the initiative, rural households will receive free access to their local landfill sites for the purpose of emptying a Council provided wheelie bin used solely for the purpose of disposing of household domestic waste.

Rural residents will need to apply to Council for the issue of one 240Lt bin per rural residential only (black bin with red lid) free of charge. The cost of bins be funded from the waste reserves. Bins will only be issued on formal application to CGRC, to enable all property details are recorded into Council’s waste management system. Each rateable property is limited to one bin only.
