Changes to kerbside waste and recycling


Following a one-year review of Hobsons Bay’s kerbside waste service, Council will implement a range of changes to further improve our waste management system.

These changes include:

  • introducing weekly collections for general waste
  • transitioning food organics and garden organics (FOGO) collections to fortnightly
  • trialling the use of compostable paper bags for FOGO

Council is developing an implementation plan for the changes and will keep the community updated on timeframes. Until then, it is business as usual with the current scheduled collections and calendars.

For residents who have already participated in the free COVID-19 interim upsize for garbage bins, you can continue to use the 240L bin at no charge for the time being. Council will be in touch over the course of the year to advise of further changes to this program.

Keep an eye out for updates on the compostable paper bag trial and how to get involved.
