Council is reducing the use of single use plastics by making a shift to compostable dog waste bags. Over the next two weeks, compostable dog waste bags will be rolled out to all dispensers across the Council district. The shift to a compostable product means that if you take the used bags home, they can be disposed of in your green bin rather than your general waste bin, not only reducing plastic waste but also total waste to landfill. Any feedback on the new bags can be emailed to

If you are interested in adopting a dispenser please contact Community Safety on 8555 7000 during business hours.
