Our free hard waste collections
We provide two free hard rubbish collections each year: one in winter and one in spring.
Winter hard waste collection (no booking required)
Our winter hard rubbish collection usually happens in June and July. Your collection date depends on where you live in Darebin.
You will get a hard rubbish brochure in the mail two weeks before your collection week. It will let you know the date and time to put items out for collection, and any other important information.
This is a council-wide collection and you don't need to make a booking.
Collection dates for Winter 2022
Collections may take 5 days for each area. Please ensure you have your hard waste out from the first day in your area, as different trucks will collect different the types of waste (such as metals, electronics, furniture, timber etc..) throughout the week.
Find out more about what you can put out for the hard waste collection.
