MORNINGTON Peninsula residents can dispose of green waste at no cost during the shire’s No Charge Green Waste event from 28 to 30 April.
The no charge weekend is for shire residents or ratepayers only, with green waste to be delivered only from residential vehicles and trailers.
The popularity of previous free waste days has led to delays at transfers stations, especially in the morning and at the end of the day.
Proof of residency (driver’s license, rates notice) needs to be shown at the transfer station.
Green waste includes all types of garden waste and untreated timber.
The Mornington transfer station can only accept up to three cubic metres of green waste each trip.
No commercial vehicles or commercial green waste will be accepted.
Residents living in the urban area of the shire can choose to receive a 240-litre fortnightly green and food waste bin collection.
For more information about the free green waste weekend or to book a green waste bin collection service visit mornpen.vic.gov.au/greenwaste
Resource recovery centres are at Rye in Truemans Road; Tyabb, McKirdys Road; and Mornington, Watt Road.
Opening hours for the green waste are 8am-4pm Friday and 8am-5pm Saturday and Sunday.
