Council’s 'Ring and Book' Hard Waste Collection Service allows households to book two collections per financial year at a time that suits them.
The ‘Ring and Book’ Hard Waste Collection Service replaces the fixed schedule collection that occurred in January to March and June to August each year. There is no longer a separate monthly service as all hard waste bookings are now available on a ring and book basis.
Council’s previous monthly whitegoods, scrap metal and electronic waste service has been incorporated into the ‘Ring and Book’ hard waste arrangements. Residents can now place out whitegoods, scrap metal and any other eligible hard waste items all together for a booked collection at a time that suits their needs.
Bookings must be made directly to Council’s authorised collection contractor WM Waste Management on 9721 1915. Alternatively, leave your details at www.hardrubbishmelbourne.com.au/contact-us and a representative from WM Waste Management will contact you to organise a booking.
Benefits of the service include:
Bicycles (however, adult bicycles are wanted for Council’s Bikes4Life program and can be dropped-off at the Whitehorse Recycling and Waste Centre.
Most of the materials collected through the Ring and Book Hard Waste and Bundled Prunings Collection Service will be recycled.
Other services are available for unwanted household goods that cannot be disposed of through the Ring and Book Hard Waste Collection Service.
