Garbage is collected at The Park Apartments on Friday. Details. Please properly sort your recyclable refuse and deposit into the appropriately marked containers. Please be responsible with the disposal of waste. Bag and tie all items of domestic garbage before placing into garbage bins.
Hard waste is the responsibility of the residents to dispose of. Do not leave items of furniture, mattresses, china, glass, carpet, electrical equipment, paint tins, televisions, computer equipment in the garbage collection area. These must be taken by residents to the Resource Recovery Centre.
The City of Port Phillip has a Resource Recovery Centre (Transfer Station / Tip) located on the corner of White and Boundary Streets, South Melbourne (Melway 2E F11). Phone: 9209 6686 or 9209 6553.
The Building Manager arranges four (4) hard waste collection days in consultation with the City of Port Phillip.
A number of paper recycle bins have been placed in the large mail box areas for "junk mail", but they are not general garbage bins.
Rubbish Chute (available in high rise buildings)

Ensure nothing is dripping on route to the rubbish chute cupboard and keep this area clean.
