Get your green waste ready!

Published on 04 November 2020


With restrictions eased, Mornington Peninsula Shire is pleased to invite residents to dispose of green waste at no cost during our ‘No Charge’ Green Waste event from Friday 13 November to Monday 16 November.

The ‘No Charge’ Green Waste event is for Shire residents or ratepayers only, with green waste to be delivered only from residential vehicles and trailers.

These events are popular with residents and to accommodate as many as possible we have extended the event over four days. Delays should be expected, especially in the morning and at the end of the day. With COVID-safe requirements in place contact details will need to be provided at the gate. 

  • To bring proof of residency (for example driver’s license, rates notice)
  • Green waste includes all types of garden waste and untreated timber
  • Mornington can only accept up to three cubic metres of green waste per trip
  • No commercial vehicles or commercial green waste will be accepted.

If you find yourself regularly taking green waste to the tip, you can opt-in to receive a 240-litre fortnightly green waste bin collection if you live in the ‘urban area’ of the Shire.
For more information about the ‘No Charge’ Green Waste event or to book a green waste bin collection service, phone 1300 850 600, 5950 1000 or visit
