Event details

Corner Springvale Road and Reynolds Road
VIC 3111


Disposal days will not proceed on a Total Fire Ban day or a day of Extreme or above Fire Danger Rating.

To help you remove garden waste to prepare for bushfire season, you can drop off either one car boot, station wagon, ute or a 6‘x4’ level trailer load of garden waste on certain dates throughout the year.


Who can use this service?

You need to live in a Bushfire Prone Area to use this service. We will ask you to show proof of residency (either a driver's licence or rates notice) at the check-in point on the day. If someone else drops off the garden waste for you, make sure you provide them with your proof.
