It's time to switch: Green lid bins (food and garden waste) are collected weekly from August and red landfill bins every fortnight, to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Walking is Victoria’s most popular recreational activity. Whether you walk for exercise or enjoyment, it is low-cost, accessible, and you can do it alone or with others, making it the perfect step in the right direction for a healthy lifestyle.
Walking is one of the most important things you can do for your mental and physical wellbeing. So what are you waiting for? Take a walk in Monash!
Remember to take and drink plenty of water before, during and after exercise, particularly on hot days or when you feel dehydrated.
Walking with someone is safer than walking on your own. Encourage family, friends or a neighbour to join you.
New walkers are advised to consult their doctor should they have any health concerns prior to embarking on a new walking program.
