Introduction of recycling The Tumut Shire waste collection service has been designed to enable separation of recyclables from other wastes at home. The sorting contractor for the Tumut Shire is Valmar Support Services with collections by Snowy Works and Services.
Being waste wise is everyone’s responsibility. Separating your waste helps us look after Tumut Shire’s environment. Being waste wise means reusing, recycling, composting and disposing of your waste so we can reduce the amount of rubbish going to landfill. The Waste Wise in Tumut Shire Guide (126Kb pdf) will give you useful tips on being waste wise. Being waste wise is easy, so let’s work together to make a difference.
As of January 2007, "Red means Rubbish" The new red lid bin is for non- recyclable rubbish and your old bin will become the recycling bin.
