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 Monday 27 May - Friday 28 June 2019 (No booking required)
The next Council-wide, area-based winter collection will take place from Monday 27 May - Friday 28 June 2019.
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.

Limited, Booked Spring Hard Waste Collection
Council makes available a limited number of pre-booked hard waste collections in Spring each year. Please note that these limited collections are only available to residents who have made a booking in advance. Bookings usually open in August, with collections commencing in September.
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. Please see the Conditions of Collection and Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
