Tree Mulching

Free service for your large branches


This free mulching service helps you

dispose of larger branches that are not

suitable for your kerbside organics bin.

Up to 4 cubic metres of material

accepted per household. No commercial

quantities or materials from vehicles

with commercial branding will be

accepted. Proof of Hume residency

required.

Mulch is available to take home after a

mulching day. If you would like to collect

some mulch this can be done after

2.45pm.

Mulch serves several purposes. It helps

to suppress weeds, slows moisture

evaporation, improves soil texture and

helps moderate soil temperatures.

Christmas Tree Mulching

Additional mulching days will be

held in the first week of January

to help with the disposal of

Christmas trees. Visit Council’s

website for details.

On Bin Day


Place your bin out by 6am on your collection day

60cm

Did you know you need to place your

bins side by side leaving at least

60cm (an arm’s length) between the

bins and other objects?

Bins should also be placed within one

metre of the kerb with the wheels

facing away from the road.

If you live in a court, our drivers

will place yellow dots in the areas

to place your bins. This will assist

us in safely collecting your bins.

Collection Map - How to use the maps

When is my collection date?

Find the area you live in on the previous pages. Match the colour on the

map where you live to the calendar below.

Your garbage is collected every week on the day listed and the calendar

shows the dates for your recycling collection. Your organics bin will be

collected on the alternate fortnight to your recycling bin.

For example, if you live in Sunbury you can check the Sunbury map for

the area you live in. If you live in the northern areas of Sunbury your

garbage collection will be a Wednesday each week and your recycling

collection will be a Wednesday Week 2 collection - so follow the dark

purple schedule in the calendar below.

The calendar on the following page can be used as a quick reference

guide and be placed on your fridge.

If you are unsure of when your collection day visit ‘Know your bin day’

on the Council’s website.

Please note that collections may start earlier on days of extreme heat.
