Delay to recycling collections

We are aware of delays with our recycling collections. Please leave your bins out until they are collected.  We apologise for any inconvenience.

With the permanent Balwyn Library closed due to an $8 million redevelopment, we are making it easier for users to get to the temporary Balwyn North location when public transport services are infrequent.

A community shuttle bus is taking users to the temporary Balwyn Library when public transport services are infrequent.

Until mid-May 2017, a community shuttle bus will run on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons to and from the temporary Balwyn Library in Balwyn North, from its permanent home on Whitehorse Road. The journey is 1.6 kilometres.

This free service will depart from Balwyn on the hour on Wednesday evenings between 6pm and 8pm, and on Sunday afternoons between 1pm and 4pm.

Here is the timetable:

From 336 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn (to temporary library from permanent library)

  • Wednesdays: 6pm, 7pm, 8pm
  • Sundays: 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm

From 230 Balwyn Road, Balwyn North (from temporary library to permanent library)

  • Wednesdays: 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm
  • Sundays: 1.30pm, 2.30pm, 3.30pm, 4.30pm
