Be prepared for bulk leaf collections

Our autumn bulk leaf collection service is back from April to early July, when ‘leaf loader’ machines collect fallen leaves from selected streets where leaf fall is heaviest. You can play your part to make sure we provide the best service possible by keeping cars parked off the road on your scheduled collection days and keeping clear of machinery.

Bulk leaf collection dates replace regular street sweeping dates from April to early July in selected streets.

There is a new, quick and easy way to find your street sweeping days online. We heard your feedback and are pleased to provide a new, interactive map on our website. Now it’s a breeze to search for your address and see your street sweeping dates for the year.

Book a bundled green waste collection

Have you been busy in the garden tidying up overhanging branches and shrubs? You can recycle your autumn prunings by booking a bundled green waste collection. 

Each eligible property in Boroondara can book one free bundled green waste collection for April, which can be used to recycle up to 2 cubic metres of bundled and tied green waste. To guarantee pick-up, bundles must be securely tied with non-plastic string or twine. Green waste is sent for composting with food organic and garden organic waste. 

Bookings close at 2pm on Friday 29 April. Collections will finish on Friday 6 May.

To book, visit our Book a bundled green waste collection page or phone (03) 9278 4444.
