A section of the Boroondara Recycling and Waste Centre will be closed for works from 30 September until 18 November 2019. Most waste items will still be accepted at the centre and the opening hours will remain the same. See more details about changes at the centre.

Friday 27 September is the Grand Final Friday public holiday, so some of our services and centres may be closed or have different hours. Please see more details of all affected services.

Smarter ways to reduce waste 

There's always a better way to deal with waste items. We can reduce our overall waste by making better choices when shopping and by reusing items in creative ways to lengthen their life before recycling it. Keep this simple order in mind: avoid, reduce, reuse, recycle/compost, disposal.

In addition to guidance on recycling, composting and waste disposal, you'll see some handy tips on how you can reuse items and avoid creating waste.
