Free hard waste collections are available for Darebin residents.
Declutter Your Home
The annual winter hard waste and recycling collection is coming up. Now is a good time to think about cleaning up around the home, so why not have a decluttering day!
You have a limited amount of material (one cubic metre) in your hard waste and recycling collection. Why not pass on reusable and recyclable items first and save your hard waste and recycling collection space for items you can’t reuse, re-gift or recycle?
There are many things you can do with unwanted items – like re-gifting or giving them away. You could even make some money by selling your items online – maybe even find a local online swap. Local charity stores are a good option – many of them will even collect items from your home.
Don’t forget that the Darebin Resource Recovery Centre social enterprise in Kurnai Ave, Reservoir, will take many reusable and/or recyclable items for free. For furniture and other reusable items in good condition, call to check first if they need them. For more information see the Darebin Resource Recovery Centre or call 9462 3455.
If you ever have hard waste that you need to dispose of, refer to Council’s website here.
