Your Hard Waste and Recycling Collection
Council provides two free hard waste and recycling collections for Darebin residents each year:
- Spring - a limited number of pre-booked collections (booking required)
- Winter - a Council-wide, area-based collection (no booking required)
Limited, Booked Spring Hard Waste Collection
Council makes available a limited number of pre-booked hard waste collections in Spring each year.
The next limited, booked Spring hard waste collection will run between Monday 10 September and Friday 30 November in 2018.
Bookings open in mid to late August 2018. Exact dates and booking information will be confirmed closer to the collection. Collection bookings fill up very quickly so you are advised to book early on 8470 8888.
Please note that these limited collections are only available to residents who have made a booking in advance.
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.
For further information, please phone 8470 8888 or email email@example.com
Conditions of Collection
To ensure your hard waste and recycling is collected you must meet the Conditions of Collection. Conditions include how, when and what you can put out for collection.

During Council's hard waste and recycling collection, it is important to remember:

Winter Area-Based Collection (No booking required)
The next Council-wide, area-based winter collection will take place in winter 2019. We set the dates and times for these each year and collect from a whole area at the same time.
