Waste rebates and discounts

We are committed to protecting the environment and reducing waste sent to landfill – that’s why we provide rebates and incentives to you if you take steps to reduce your household waste.

Rebate of up to $50 for a compost bin or worm farm

Compost bins and worm farms divert food scraps from your garbage bin and create nutrient-rich material for your garden.

If you buy your own compost bin or worm farm and submit the waste reduction rebate form with a copy of the receipt and proof of your Cardinia Shire address, we will give you a rebate of up to $50 on your purchase.

Rebate of up to $50 for a garden mulcher, garden shredder or portable wood chipper

If you buy your own garden mulcher, garden shredder or portable wood chipper and submit the waste reduction rebate form with a copy of the receipt and proof of your Cardinia Shire address, we will give you a rebate of up to $50 on your purchase.

If your system cost less than $50

We will refund you for the amount you spent. 

Rebate not available for:

  • commercial equipment
  • blower vac mulchers
  • mulching mowers
  • parts and accessories.

Organic waste makes up almost half of the waste produced by households. If this waste goes to landfill it decomposes without oxygen, creating harmful gases including methane.

Using a compost bin helps to reduce waste that would otherwise go to landfill and creates nutrient-rich material for your garden. 

For more info on composting and worm farms go to the Sustainability Victoria website 

Mulching provides a great alternative to using a green waste bin or burning materials. Burning garden waste releases gases that are harmful to humans and the environment. By using a mulcher, shredder or wood chipper, you will generate nutrient-rich material that can be added to your garden or land.

We will give you a $30 discount on your next annual rates bill if you swap your 120-litre garbage bin for an 80-litre bin.
