Council provides a weekly recycling and waste collection service for local residents. For a one-off fee, businesses can also receive this collection service.
Council also provides a green waste and hard waste collection service. Residents can book to receive these services.
Council's waste services area also maintains more than 600 street and park bins across Yarra, and routinely cleans all local streets and major shopping strips.
People are encouraged to think sustainably and recycle as much as they can, to help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.
Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy
In November 2014, Council adopted its Waste and Resource Recovery Strategy to guide its waste and recycling services and waste education programs over the next four years.
The strategy is based on the vision that avoiding and reducing waste will make Yarra more sustainable and increase the availability of resources for current and future citizens.
Council has a Customer Service Guarantee which includes 64 targets that specify the level of service you should expect from Council. Read more about our commitments for Waste Services in the Customer Service Guarantee.
