RATEPAYERS can get rid of green waste for free at Mornington Peninsula Shire’s no charge green waste event, 25, 26 and 27 October.
The event is for Mornington Peninsula Shire residents or ratepayers only, with green waste to be dropped off only from residential vehicles and trailers. No commercial vehicles or commercial green waste will be accepted.
Proof of residency is required, such as driver’s licence with current address or a current rates notice.
Green waste includes all types of garden waste and untreated timber.
Expect delays at the resource recovery centres, particularly at the beginning and end of each day. Consider using the Tyabb site to avoid delays at Mornington. Mornington can only accept up to three cubic metres of green waste per trip.
Ratepayers can opt-in to receive a 240 litre fortnightly kerbside green waste bin collection if they live in urban areas of the shire. There is a cost for this service.
Resource Recovery Centres are at Truemans Road, Rye, McKirdys Road, Tyabb, and Watt Road, Mornington.
Opening hours are 8am-4pm Friday and 8am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.
