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.
Due to COVID-19 impacts and winter illnesses, Monash Maternal and Child Health are experiencing extreme staff shortages. Children booked between 10.08.2022 – 28.08.2022 for their 18m, 2y and 3.5yr Key Age and Stage will be contacted by our service to be rescheduled for September. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
Due to COVID staff shortages, between 12.30pm-2pm until the end of August, calls will be directed to our after-hours service for follow-up. Thank you for your understanding.

The contents of your recycling bin are processed by VISY at its material recovery facility. Accepted items are sorted into streams of paper, plastic, glass, steel and aluminium. Contaminated items (items that shouldn’t be in the recycling bin) are manually removed and sent to landfill.
Visy is a packaging company that uses accepted items to create new packaging items made from recycled materials, such as cardboard boxes, water bottles, glass bottles and jars, beverage cans and pet food tins.
