Walk & Hike
A simple and important thing we can all do every day to protect our environment and look after this special alpine community we love is to firstly REDUCE our waste as much as possible, and then RECYCLE everything we can.
Mt Buller and Mt Stirling Resort Management has been a member of North East Waste and Resource Recovery Group for over 10 years.

Please DO NOT put any hard waste items in Village waste huts or on kerbside.
This is considered illegal dumping and heavy penalties do apply.
It is also very costly for Resort staff and waste contractors to continually collect, manage and dispose of these unwanted items left in waste huts and around the village.
You are responsible for your own hard waste and you must take items to an appropriate disposal facility (see below).

As of 1st July 2019 e-waste is no longer accepted in any bin or landfill sites across Victoria. Instead, it must be taken to dedicated drop-off points where it will be collected for resource recovery.
What is e-waste
If it’s got a plug, battery or cord and is unwanted, it’s e-waste. It could be any of a whole range of items from work, home or even the garden shed. From old phones, computers and household appliances to power tools and toys.
Why recover it?
Electronic waste is growing up to three times faster than general municipal waste. When you consider what is inside e-waste and that up to 90% of it can be recovered and made into something else, it makes no sense to bury electronic objects in the ground once we are finished with them.

Approximately one third of most household waste is FOOD. So, of course we need all need to get better about reducing our food waste, but we can also make sure that any organic waste is recycled and turned into compost, not mixed with other non-recyclable waste.
At Mt Buller Mt Stirling we make this really easy and have an onsite composting unit to capture our food waste and turn it into compost used right here in resort.
We call this the LIVING BIN and it’s see our recycling rate jump from 41% in 2010 up to 45.5% in 2013, the highest of any alpine resort in Australia!
