Prepare your property for summer and dispose of your green waste for ‘no charge’ at Mornington Peninsula Shire’s ‘No Charge’ Green Waste disposal event.

The event will take place at all Resource Recovery Centres (Transfer Stations) on the 19, 20 and 21 October.

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

Proof of residency is required to dispose of green waste for no charge at this event. For example: your driver’s licence with your current address or your current rates notice.

Green waste includes all types of garden waste and untreated timber.

Delays are to be expected at the Resource Recovery Centres particularly at the beginning and end of the 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.

You can also opt-in to receive a 240-litre fortnightly kerbside green waste bin collection if you live in the ‘urban area’ of the shire. There is a cost for this service.
