All forms must be sent to PO Box 1, Glen Waverley, VIC, 3150.

You can also print, sign, scan and email the forms to wasteservicesadmin@monash.vic.gov.au

If you struggle to move or wash your bigger bin, talk to us about the option to downsize your bin. Please contact Waste Services on 9518 3555 or mail@monash.vic.gov.au

Request a green waste bin

If you would like to recycle food waste and don’t have a green waste bin, please contact us to request one and we’ll see if your property is eligible.

We will need to make sure you have adequate storage and collection access for the green waste bin. Depending on your housing situation, we may also need to chat with your Body Corporate or Landlord (where applicable).

If your request is approved, we will arrange a green waste bin and kitchen caddy for you. To request a green waste bin, please complete this form:

Request a kitchen caddy

If you don’t have a kitchen caddy to collect your food scraps in, please email mail@monash.vic.gov.au or call 9518 3555. You can also complete a request via the online request form

Please note: Kitchen caddies are only available to residential properties with a food and garden waste (green) bin. There is a limit of 1 caddy per household; broken or missing caddies can be replaced.

Need an additional or a bigger bin?

If you find your landfill (red lid), recycling or green waste bin gets full before bin collection day you can request an extra bin or a larger bin. To do so, please complete this form:

Please note: This form must be completed by the ratepayer. Additional fees apply for additional or larger bins and will be added to your rates notice. Fees are reviewed annually and are calculated pro-rata based on when the bin is delivered. The cost for an additional recycling bin will be reduced to $65 per year from 1 July 2022. If you are currently paying for a second recycling bin, the reduced cost will automatically be applied to your rates from this date.

Apply for special consideration

Eligible households can request a larger landfill (red lid) bin, or an additional recycling bin, free of charge.
