The Landfill is open and manned at the following times:
• Thursday, Friday and Monday from 8.00 am till 5.00 pm
• Saturday and Sunday from 8.00 am until 12.00 midday.

The contact phone number for the landfill is: 4992 1634

The landfill is closed on Council Picnic Day, Good Friday and Easter Monday and on Christmas and New Years Day each year.

This is a solid waste Class 2 licenced facility that accepts most solid waste including green waste and asbestos (see below for conditions). Tip fees are charged on all waste and unsorted recyclable material. Fees do not apply to ferrous and non ferrous metals, clean cardboard and paper and sorted domestic recyclable containers.

Additional services provided at the landfill include a Drummuster facility for clean empty veterinary and farm chemical containers, a waste oil collection service, domestic recycling, cardboard/paper collection, ferrous and non ferrous metals, and a second hand shop. Further enquiries can be directed to Council on 4995 7777 or to the landfill on 4992 1634.

Special Rubbish Clean Ups

In addition to the weekly and fortnightly waste and recycling service Council provides annually:
• A green waste pick up service in Spring to all properties within the village of Gresford and East Gresford.
• A bulky waste collection service around March each year to all properties receiving a domestic waste service.
Contact Dungog Council for dates.

Control of Burning in Dungog Shire

It is now prohibited to burn vegetation or other waste within the town and village areas of the Shire. This covers the villages of:
• Gresford & East Gresford

These requirements are enforceable & took effect when Dungog Shire Council joined with neighbouring Councils to list on the NSW State Clean Air Regulation Schedule in September 2010.

The prohibition on burning vegetation is aimed at reducing the level of smoke in towns & villages that can have a significant impact on residents, particularly those suffering with respiratory problems like asthma. It will also help reduce localised pollution and green house gases.

Disposing of Vegetation

Composting leaves, trimmings or weeds puts carbon back into the soil instead of the air.  Material unsuitable for compost or mulch without further treatment can be taken to the Landfill in Short Street Dungog for shredding to be used as a soil conditioner or mulch. Council provides a green waste pickup to the village areas in Spring each year and has low green waste tipping fees for self haul loads.

Rural Zoned Property

The prohibition on burning vegetation does not apply to rural/rural lifestyle zones & to routine agricultural activities.

Other Waste

Under the legislation it is prohibited to burn other types of waste in all areas of the Shire where a waste service is available.

This includes domestic, commercial and building waste which needs to be sorted and transported to the Dungog Landfill or another licensed facility.

PLEASE NOTE that during the Statutory Fire Danger Period, Fires are not permitted unless a Permit has been obtained from the NSW Rural Fire Service.
