Kerbside collection of garden waste has been extended to include June.

The Upper Lachlan Shire Council's acting general manager Andrew Croke said the trial extension is due to the amount of Autumn foliage across the region.

It was expected to conclude on June 1 and recommence at the start of spring.

Its success will determine future years, Mr Croke said.

Since the collection began in September 2018 about 300 cubic metres of waste has been collected. It is used at the Crookwell landfill for landscaping.

Households are reminded that no food waste or timber can be disposed of in the green-lidded bin.

The following, un-bagged, garden waste is permitted:

  • Branches and twigs
  • Grass, leaves, and weeds
  • Garden prunings
