Glass bans

Council is serious about keeping our beaches, streets and reserves clean and safe for everyone to enjoy.
  • From 12 midday Tuesday 22 September to 6 pm Sunday 24 October, the City of Port Phillip will enter into the Election Period for the Council Elections.

    You can still contact us during this period and we’ll resume regular operation on Monday 26 October.

Under our local laws, the following glass ban is in place across the City of Port Phillip foreshore.

Effective from 1 July 2018, you cannot take any glass container, bottle, or other glass items onto the foreshore without a permit.

The foreshore within the City of Port Phillip includes beaches, reserves and parkland, from Elwood to Port Melbourne, between the water and the road along Ormond Esplanade, Marine Parade, Jacka Boulevard, Beaconsfield Parade and Beach Street.

The map below highlights the areas along the foreshore where the glass ban is in place.
