Geelong council says people with cars, utes or trailers do not have to pay, but trucks will incur a standard fee and waste that was not a result of the storm will not be accepted.

Council says it will not be collecting material placed on nature strips, and people must have a Geelong address on their identification to get fees waived at the tip.
