How to use your printed 2024 waste and recycling calendar

To read your calendar, please follow the below instructions:

  1. Find the day your bins will be collected
    Look at the map on the back of your calendar and find the coloured zone where you live. This will tell you which day of the week your bins will be collected.

  2. Check which bins are collected on any given week
    Each line of the calendar is colour-coded to tell you which bins are collected that week.
  3. Note non-collection days
    Collections will not occur on Good Friday, Christmas Day or New Year’s Day. Collections will occur one day after your usual collection day that week. This is indicated by the blue box representing a public holiday, followed by the arrow icon in the calendar.


You can also download your 2024 calendar from the below links.

Before you do so, you'll need to know which area of Hobsons Bay you live in.

Hobsons Bay is divided into four areas: Area 1, Area 2, Area 3 and Area 4. To learn which area you reside in, please view the below map. Once you've determined which area you're in, scroll down to find the link to the collection calendar for your area.
