Manningham’s Garden Waste Centre has been closed indefinitely due to new advice that it is no longer in a suitable condition to reopen under current regulatory operational requirements.
The future use of the site will be considered by Council in 2021.
There are alternative options available for residents to dispose of excess garden waste, including:
- Order an additional garden waste bin for your property. Bins should arrive within 48 business hours and are charged on a pro-rata basis ($2.38 per week).
- Book a bundled branches collection for branches to be collected from your nature strip.
- Visit one of the neighbouring waste transfer centres in Nillumbik, Knox, Banyule or Whitehorse.
- We will be hosting garden waste disposal days on 20 to 21 February and 27 to 28 February for residents living in the Bushfire Prone Area. These are in addition to the ones offered in November 2020 which received a positive response from residents after the storm event in early 2020.
Residents are encouraged to manage their properties year round to prepare for emergencies, including fire, storm and flood.
Further information to assist you to prepare your property can be found on our prepare for an emergency page.
If a neighbouring property is a fire hazard, you can let us know by reporting an unsightly property. If we determine that a fire hazard exists, a notice will be sent to the landowner giving them a direction to clean up their land.
