As anticipated by the Chief Health Officer, Victoria has once again experienced record high numbers with 273 new cases identified overnight. 22 of these cases are linked to known outbreaks, 25 were identified through routine testing and 226 are under investigation.

As of today, Victoria has 1,484 active cases with a total of 3,799 cases overall. At this stage, 562 cases may indicate community transmission. 57 Victorians are in hospital, with 16 in intensive care.

Monash has recorded 2 new cases, bringing our total active cases to 21 at this time. To date we have had 75 cases in Monash. Earlier this week we became aware of a confirmed case from a staff member at Woolworths in Mount Waverley. We continue to stay in touch with the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS).

DHHS notes that residential location is the residential address provided when the case is notified – not necessarily where they were infected and may not be where the case currently resides.

Sadly we often see large amounts of polystyrene (also known as expanded polystyrene – EPS) in Scotchmans Creek and the litter trap above Blackburn road.

Polystyrene is a real problem because it is lightweight and easily blown away, eventually reaching our waterways. It does not degrade but breaks up into small bits that can be mistaken as food by aquatic animals and birds, causing issues such as retarded growth, blocked digestive systems and damaged organs. The polystyrene can also attract persistent organic pollutants such as pesticides and flame retardants.

Australia consumes 71 000 tons annually the equivalent of 1060 olympic swimming pools!

The Yarra RiverKeeper Association recently completed a project to better understand and quantify potential sources of polystyrene. They found that polystyrene is the most prevalent item of rubbish in the Yarra River likely originating from a wide range of industries and handlers.

Polystyrene can be recycled at the:
Monash Waste Transfer Station and Recycling Centre
380 Ferntree Gully Road, Notting Hill
T: 95183767
*For residents only - small quantities

If you would like more information, the Yarra RiverKeeper Association study results are summarised nicely in their report (yarrariver.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Polystyrene-Pollution-in-the-Yarra-River-single-lowr...) and in a webinar at

I really appreciate these updates - in particular sharing the data on Monash and surrounding municipalities.

The Monash numbers are disappointing, particularly in comparison to our neighbours. Is there any further detail available about the Monash cases? Close contacts of positives? Community transmission? We had zero active cases just a couple of weeks ago...

Thanks for sharing these updates, especially active count for our council and neighbourhood. Take care and stay safe!

I’ve had a lot of feedback, queries and suggestions over the past few weeks about our new food and organics recycling program. Based on the experiences of our family after two weeks, here are some ideas and tips you might like to consider.

• If you’ve got kids, get them involved. Our two girls have been fascinated to learn what happens to their waste and which bins things go in. They’re even telling my wife off when she puts things in the wrong bin by accident.
• We have our caddy on our kitchen bench right next to the sink
• After dinner, we feed our meat leftovers to the dog
• Meat that our dog can’t eat (such as a chicken roast carcass), we put in an airtight container and then place it in the freezer instead of the caddy. We remove the container and empty it straight in the green bin just before it goes out for collection
• We haven’t had a use for any liners in the caddy, we just throw the food straight in there. Not having meat in there seems to mean no smells. If you’d prefer to use compostable liners though, make sure they meet the AS4736 standard
• We’ve got a box of bicarb soda next to the bin, just in case (bicarb is great for absorbing smells. Those of us old enough will remember that every fridge used to have a box before they got more intelligent)
• The caddy is normally full after 3-4 days and we just empty it straight in to our green bin and then wash it out with some warm soapy water and it’s like brand new
• Before we empty the caddy in to our green bin, we grab a stack of leaves from the ground and put a layer of them in the bin
• All of our used tissues are going straight in to the caddy as well

A lot of people have queried whether we should collect green bins every week instead of every second week. Personally, our red bin is now practically empty as it’s all in the green bin. We will look at our bin collection cycles once the food and organics service is in full swing and we’ve had a chance to assess what the uptake and compliance levels are like. We were keen to introduce this program with minimal changes to the existing systems in place in order to make it as easy as possible for people to understand and get used to.

All households in Ashwood, Burwood, Chadstone, Hughesdale, Huntingdale, Mount Waverley, Oakleigh and Oakleigh East should have already received their caddy. If you haven’t, please call Council on 9518 3555 and we’ll send one out.

Households in Clayton, Glen Waverley, Mulgrave, Notting Hill, Oakleigh South and Wheelers Hill should receive theirs in the next two weeks.

If you haven’t yet received your caddy you can still participate. Simply scrape your food scraps on to a plate or in to a bowl/container and put it straight in to your green bin.

Almost half the waste going to landfill is food or organics waste, which releases dangerous methane gases as it breaks down. Utilising this new initiative is one of the easiest ways, as an individual, you can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and our impact on the environment.

The information booklet that comes with the caddy has some fantastic information and tips, and there is more information available at monash.vic.gov.au/food-waste

I’m still learning too, so if you've got any experiences or ideas you'd like to share, post below 👇

I save meat bones, onion, celery and carrot tops, mushroom stalks in a bag in freezer so when it's soup-making time, I put the lot in a slow cooker with water and herbs the night before to make a stock for the basis of the soup. And then chuck those stock scraps in the green bin.

The only difference this new bin will make to me is that it is prettier than the old bench top bucket I have been using for years 🙂

I am so happy that we are finally finding viable solutions for our waste problems in Monash. This initiative is highly appreciated... We need to talk about packaging too.. how can we convince supermarkets (and even farmer's markets unfortunately) to stop wrapping produce in plastic, and stop sticking paper labels on fruits, they clog worm farms and can end up in the green bin. They can use edible ink.

Stuart James Are you sure used tissues can go in the green bin There are tissues that have aloe vera some with eucalyptus scent etc and the germs from wiping your nose etc is actually gross I think it's not ideal that we should put tissues in the green bin Next it will be poo... By the way where are we supposed to put the used cat litter please? The one that is made from compressed recycled paper, not the crystals - why is there no mention in any of the material on how to dispose of waste?

Hi Mayor Stuart, I live in Burwood and would love a bin but I’m in Whitehorse Burwood? Can l come and collect one?

We’ve been using ours thanks! Great initiative.

Great post Mayor! Very informative and helpful! 👍

Good tips, thanks.

Excellent tips here. Well done!

Hi Stuart how does council determine distribution of green bins? As our new complex doesn’t have any so we can’t re-allocate our compost. Thanks 😊

Today Victoria has recorded 288 new cases – the largest ever daily numbers the state has recorded. 26 of the new cases are linked to known outbreaks, with 262 still under investigation. This is not surprising, given the large amount of cases that require investigating. 37,588 tests were conducted in the state yesterday, the biggest total ever.

The Chief Health Officer (CHO) Brett Sutton has suggested we may continue to see similarly high numbers in the coming one or two weeks until the Stage 3 lockdown has an effect.

As of today, Victoria has 1,172 active cases with a total of 3,379 cases overall. At this stage, 509 of those cases may indicate community transmission.

Closer to home, Monash has recorded 4 new cases, bringing our total active cases to 16 at this time. To date we have had 70 cases in Monash. Staff are continuing to remain in close contact with the Department of Health & Human Services.

Looking to our neighbouring municipalities, here are the updated active case numbers:

Whitehorse – 15
Knox – 3
Maroondah – 4
Greater Dandenong – 3
Stonnington – 12
Glen Eira – 3
Boroondara – 12
Kingston – 3

As with yesterday, the LGAs currently with the biggest active caseloads are Hume (167), Melbourne (226), Wyndham (151), Brimbank (82), Moonee Valley (120) and Moreland (63).

You may have heard that the State Government is now requesting people in metropolitan Melbourne and Mitchell Shire to consider wearing a mask when out in public – for example when doing your supermarket shopping, where keeping your distance from others may not be possible.

The CHO has released advice on masks, which you can read here: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/face-masks-metropolitan-melbourne-mitchell-shire-covid-19

The government has emphasised that wearing a mask does not exempt you from following the other guidelines – you should still maintain your distance of 1.5metres between yourself and others and only leave your house for one of the four essential reasons: food shopping, medical care or care giving, school or work, or daily exercise.

I know this has been a disheartening week for many of us. These are difficult and unsure times and the next six weeks won’t be easy. But I know that we can make it through this together. The important thing is to follow the guidelines, stay at home except for the four essential reasons, and get tested if you are unwell. As we head into the weekend, it’s more important than ever to stay at home and be vigilant.

Stay up-to-date with the Stage 3 restrictions here: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/victorias-restriction-levels-covid-19

I was walking my dog today and saw kids undertaking soccer training with spectators. 😡

Where are they from, we have the right to know

Do we have any information on the 16? Are they from the one outbreak? Are there multiple outbreaks?

I emptied our normal landfill bin on Monday night. This is what is in there on Friday morning - nothing. I’m absolutely flabbergasted at how much of our landfill waste was actually food that now goes in our new food & organics caddy

Have you received your City of Monash caddy yet? (If not you can still throw your food scraps straight in to your green bin). What has been your experience so far?

I feel green waste collection should be held weekly and red bins pushed to fortnight collection. If on average more than 50% of waste previously was from food scraps this means red bins does not require a weekly pickup. Also many have commented that their green bins are already full before food scraps were implemented.

found mine sitting out on my front lawn the other day, have not used it as yet , we do have hens so a lot of scraps can tend to go out to them but then again there isn't always scraps 🙂

No caddy yet but I’ve been putting food scraps in the green bin. I love an empty red bin.

It's so good. Green bin 100% rubbish bin 1%

Jonathan Wilson fyi

The smell from the green bin isn’t great now that food scraps are going in! 🤭Fingers crossed it doesn’t bring the rats!

Only a slight reduction here for the stuff the dogs and the compost bin don’t eat

Looking good. It's crazy how much reduction in landfill waste a simple diversion of food waste caused

Haven't received mine but started throwing food scraps in the green bin already.

Thanks Mayor Stuart James, we got ours and have put it to use straight away. Fantastic initiative!

Great initiative. Thank you 🙏

We received ours yesterday. Already in use. 😊

Good Job Mr Mayor.

No room in green bin for food scraps mine is full to the top every fortnight with garden waste. Either empty weekly or give us a bigger bin for the garden waste.

No we’ve not got ours yet

Nope, haven't received it, probably takes another year

Can you put paper kitty litter in there? We use it for our rabbit

Waiting to receive it

Covid-19 Update - City of Monash

** Disclaimer: This information is compiled from the daily update that Council receives from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and may be out-of-date. For the most up to date information, please visit www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus **

Today Victoria has recorded 165 cases with nine reclassified bringing the total for today to 156 new cases. 30 of the new cases are linked to known outbreaks, with 135 still under investigation.

Victoria is now at 932 active cases with a total of 3,098 cases overall. More than 1,030,000 tests have been processed to date.

Monash has not recorded any new cases overnight, and our total active cases remains at 12 at this time. To date we have had 66 cases in Monash. Council staff are in contact with the Department of Health & Human Services for further advice and we will continue to keep you updated.

Some of our neighbouring municipalities have seen slight changes in numbers, with their active cases sitting at:

Whitehorse – 8
Knox – 3
Maroondah – 4
Greater Dandenong – 3
Stonnington – 11
Glen Eira – 2
Boroondara – 9
Kingston – 3

Currently, the LGAs with the biggest active caseloads are Hume (143), Melbourne (128), Wyndham (133), Brimbank (75), Moonee Valley (84) and Moreland (56).

Today is the first day of Stage 3 ‘Stay at Home’ restrictions and I know this will be a difficult six weeks for many of us. The important thing to remember is that while we may be physically isolated from our families and friends, we don’t have to be socially isolated from them. Reach out to them, whether it’s a text, a call, FaceTime or Zoom, it’s important to stay connected with others.

There are now only four reasons to leave home, to ensure you can keep yourselves, your families and your community safe. You can find the updated restrictions here: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/victorias-restriction-levels-covid-19

The State Government is urging Victorians to get tested no matter how mild their symptoms, but if you’re unsure whether you should get tested, you can use this self-assessment tool to help you figure it out: www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus-self-assessment
