We all work hard to keep Boroondara safe and clean. Read on to find out which waste goes where, when bins go out and when they should come in.

Don’t waste these wheelie good bin tips:

  • Keep your bins stored on your property (not the nature strip) – unless it’s 24 hours before or after your bin collection day. 
    Tip: Look up your bin day on our find your bin day page
  • Don’t put electronic waste (like batteries, TVs or computers) in your bin. These e-waste items go to a recycling centre or drop-off location.
    Tip: Check where to place waste in our A to Z waste guide.
  • Only use Council-supplied bins for your property.
  • Keep your bin as clean as possible. Make sure you can close the lid.

All this is covered in our Amenity Local Law. 

To report a bin left out too long or an issue with your rubbish or recycling bins, go to our report a bin problem page.
