Simply place bags of unwanted but useable household goods into your empty recycling bin immediately after your normal recycling has been collected. Then push the bin straight back onto the kerb for the special Renew Collection the next day.
Prepare in advance by finding unwanted items, such as textiles, household goods, small electronic items and sporting equipment, and sorting them into product groups. Each group of items should be packed into separate plastic bags to ensure they stay clean.
We are committed to waste reduction and work with partners like SCR to expand opportunities to easily reuse and recycle items.
Textile and electronic waste (e-waste), are two of the fastest growing waste streams in Melbourne. Textile waste makes up approximately 4% of waste sent to landfill, while electronic waste will be banned in landfill from 1 July 2019.
