Please note: There will be no household waste, recyclables or green waste collections on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.  If your bin collection day is Tuesday, your bin will be collected on the Saturday before the public holiday. On all other days, bins will be collected as normal.

Please see our bins page for full details
We offer residents an optional fortnightly green waste bin collection (green bin with an orange lid) for lawn clippings, leaves, weeds and light pruning.

The green waste we collect is processed into compost, mulch, and soil enhancers.

If you have large items, such as tree branches or roots, you can book a bundled green waste collection or drop-off at the Boroondara Recycling and Waste Centre (charges apply).

Please put your bin out the night before your collection day:

  • on the naturestrip
  • close to your driveway
  • clear of all obstacles, such as trees, poles and parked cars
  • with the bin handle facing your property.
