Nillumbik Shire Council Says...

Nillumbik residents diverted 11,627 tonnes of kerbside waste from landfill during FY 2018-2019, 2,013 tonnes less than FY 2017-2018. The reduction in diversion is due to drought conditions and the diversion of 322.92 tonnes recyclables to landfill due to the shut-down of the kerbside recycling contractor. Nillumbik continues to be well above the State diversion targets.
