Recycling 2.0

Exciting change has arrived for Hobsons Bay with the introduction of Recycling 2.0, Council’s new and innovative kerbside waste and recycling service. The new service redirects waste from landfill into local recycling streams, using more of our existing resources and taking less from our natural resources. Recycling 2.0 gives our community the opportunity to take charge of our waste. Together, ‘Let’s sort it out’.

The new Recycling 2.0 service, commencing 3 February, introduces a four bin system that separates and restreams your waste, leading to  better recycling outcomes.

The service includes:

  • a food and garden waste bin, with a light green lid, collected weekly
  • a new glass recycling bin, with a purple lid, collected every four weeks
  • existing household waste bins, with a dark green lid, collected fortnightly
  • existing recycling bins, with a yellow lid, collected fortnightly
