Disposal of green waste and debris from your property
Many Canberrans have recently taken up the opportunity of acquiring a green bin, which is a great way to dispose of your unwanted vegetation and green waste. Green bin collections are continuing as programmed for all Canberra Suburbs. Please refer to the Access Canberra website for details of your next collection date.
For those without access to a green waste bin, or those with excess vegetation, green waste can be dropped off for free at Mugga Lane Resource Management Centre in Symonston between 7.30am and 4.45 pm daily as well as at Canberra Sand and Gravel on Parkwood Road Holt between 7.30 am and 4:45 pm daily.
If you notice excess debris or vegetation on public land, please visit Fix My Street to register a job so that the ACT Government can respond.
Disposal of face masks (P2 masks)
Most P2 face masks are not able to be recycled and should be disposed of following use in your general waste (red lid) bin. Some masks will come in packaging that is recyclable and can be disposed of in your (yellow lid) recycling bin. Please check information provided on products and packaging prior to disposal.
We have been supporting ACT Parks and Conservation Service and ACT Emergency Services Agency for many months in ensuring our city is prepared for the fire season.
This has included targeted mowing and tree management programs focused on bushfire prone areas.
All scheduled mowing as part of the 2019-20 Bushfire Operations Plan was completed prior to Christmas. Site inspections have confirmed the dry weather has since stopped grass growth. Our field staff are now focused on activities like tidying up urban open spaces and parks, cleaning and maintaining public amenities and managing the urban forest. This may impact on the delivery of routine activities in your area.
If you notice issues of concern on public land, please visit the Fix My Street website to register a job so that the ACT Government can respond.
We take the safety of our workers seriously. On days with significant air quality concerns we are adjusting the working arrangements of our field staff to minimise their exposure to smoke. They have also been provided with face masks.
