Your hard waste and recycling collection
Council provides two free hard waste and recycling collections for Darebin residents each year:
- Winter - a Council-wide, area-based collection (no booking required)
- Spring - a limited number of pre-booked collections (booking required)
Winter area-based collection (no booking required)
The next Council-wide, area-based winter collection will take place in winter 2020.
We set the dates and times for these each year and collect from a whole area at the same time.
You will receive our hard waste and recycling brochure with the exact dates of your collection two weeks before your collection week.
Spring booked collection (booking required, limited collections available)
The next spring limited collection will run from September 2020. Exact dates and booking information will be confirmed closer to the collection.
The Spring collection is offered to complement the winter collection for those people, like students, whose peak need is spring time when they are moving house. There are a very limited number of places available in the Spring collection, so residents are advised to book early as places fill quickly. Residents are advised of the exact date of their collection at the time of booking.
