Nillumbik Shire Council Says...

Nillumbik residents diverted 13,488 tonnes of kerbside waste from landfill during 2019-2020. The reduction in diversion is due to an increase of 417 tonnes of garbage stream due to COVID-19 and the diversion of 663 tonnes recyclables to landfill due to the shutdown of Council's kerbside recycling contractor. Nillumbik continues to be well above the State diversion targets.
