Rural Waste Service

Rural residents who don't have access to a kerbside waste collection service may be eligible to receive a Rural Waste Card which enables them to dispose of their household waste at Council’s Waste Management Centres at Goulburn, Marulan and Tarago. The annual charge for the card is $167 for the 2024/25 financial year, which is charged to your rates account.

Lost or stolen cards may be replaced on application however a fee will apply as per Council's Fees and Charges. Find the Application for Rural Waste Card below.

It is the responsibility of the property owner or managing agent to pass the card on to tenants.

The card can only be used for domestic household waste, and waste with a per-item charge at Council’s Waste Management Centres (fridges, mattresses, tyres, animals etc.) and hazardous waste (asbestos) will not be accepted using the card, and the relevant fees apply.
