If you don't wish to download the APP, we have printed calendars available by request. You can request them online HERE or phone 6499 2222.

We have taken the magnets off the back of our printed calendars and will provide you with a separate magnet that you can use year after year. This also means that when you are finished with your calendar you can put it in your yellow bin for recycling.

Having the Bega Valley Waste APP and reducing the quantity of printed calendars are part of our ongoing commitment to minimising waste in our shire.
