Waste Disposal and Kerbside Collection
Kerbside Waste Collection
Edward River Council offers a kerbside collection service for residents of Deniliquin.
Please ensure that your bin is out on the kerb before collection is due. Domestic waste must be placed in your 240 litre garbage bin. Green waste and other non-domestic waste items are not allowed to be placed in your bin.

Council's drumMuster Collection/Drop off point is located at the Deniliquin Landfill Depot.

Waste Oil Collection
The following Landfill sites can now accept used motor oil:
- Conargo - McKenzie Street, Conargo NSW 2710
- Pretty Pine - Gibbs Road, Pretty Pine NSW 2710
- Blighty - Riverina Highway, Blighty NSW 2713
- Wanganella - Cobb Highway, Wanganella NSW 2710

The waste oil collection facilities were installed with the help of funding awarded by the Department of Environment and Heritage via their Product Stewardship for Oil Programme.
Edward River Council has purchased and installed Oil Waste Collection Units at each of our waste depots and our Wanderer Street Depot. This project was undertaken to assist in the safe and convenient collection of waste oil throughout the region.
Collection of waste oil through purpose built units will assist in protecting our environment from leakages and spills which may otherwise occur. If you have any queries regarding this project or the use of these facilities, please do not hesitate to contact us.
