    Default Anyone in Melbourne...?

    Does anyone in Melbourne get Trash Packs? They're big hession sacks that you fill with garden waste and then a company comes by every month, picks it up and replaces it with a new one.
    They're about $17 p/m, or were a few years ago. They were in Tasmania. I was just hoping someone in Melbourne, particularly the Banyule area, would know of them, or something like them??

    I have a green waste bin from the local council that gets emptied once a fortnight, I think it's about $90 a year. I'm in Wyndham but I'm pretty sure most local councils in melb have them.

    Yeah, we have one of those. Unfortunately it's not big enough for what I need it for. Thank you anyway. =)

    You can buy a similar thing at bunnings then pay the company to come & pick it up. Depending on how much though a skip might be cheaper?

    You can bag it and take it to the banyule waste centre in Ivanhoe. You can also get a larger green waste bin for an extra rates charge. There are also some things you can leave outside your green waste bin, like bundled sticks, which makes some more room. And finally if you do a big clean up you can call the council for a hard rubbish collection. You get a couple of these free a year. Check out the council website :-)

    Good luck :-)
