Kerbside bin collection schedule

General rubbish kerbside bin collection happens every week, while recycling bin collection is fortnightly.

Find your bin collection days

Type your address below to find your kerbside rubbish and recycling collection days.

If you live within a bin collection zone, our Near Me map will allow you to:

  • find your kerbside bin collection days
  • download a personalised kerbside bin collection calendar unique to your address

The above feature is for residents that live within our bin collection zones only. If you live outside of our bin collection zones, the above feature will not work.

If you are unsure if you live within a bin collection zone, please download our universal kerbside bin collection calendar below.

The Near Me map isn't showing me any results

We endeavour to keep our Near Me map and data as up to date as possible. If you are experiencing any issues, please report them along with your address via our Near Me feedback form located at the bottom of our Near Me page.

How do I know if I live within a bin collection zone?

If your address is returning no bin collection dates, there is a good chance you live outside our bin collection zones. Alternatively, there could be errors in our mapping data.

You can contact our waste department by emailing mitchell@mitchellshire.vic.gov.au to discuss your collection options.

I live outside a collection zone. Where can I take my rubbish and recycling?

You can take your rubbish and recycling to one of our Resource Recovery Centres. To see a list of accepted items, see Disposing of waste the right way.

I live outside a collection zone. Can I still request a collection?

For all non-compulsory collections zones, residents can contact us to see if a collection point is available for that location.

You can contact our waste department by emailing mitchell@mitchellshire.vic.gov.au

I live on a new road or in a new estate and I can't find my address on Near Me
