Recycling Electronic & Technical Waste
Common items such as mobile phones, televisions, computers, light globes, batteries, printer cartridges and X-ray film can all be recycled at Monash Waste Transfer and Recycling Station.
Mobile phones can also be recycled the Monash Civic Centre (293 Springvale Road, Glen Waverley) or through Mobile Muster (search for your nearest drop-off point).

Food scraps make up about 40% of the household waste. Composting is easy to do, prevents the wasteful transport of food scraps to landfill and creates a great soil for your garden.
Composting has never been easier for Monash residents as you can now purchase a discounted compost bin, worm farm or Bokashi bin through a Council rebate.
Please visit Circular Food to order your discounted products online. Alternatively, give them a call (0 402 269 864) or visit their store (105 Hume Highway, Somerton). More information: Composting.
