HomeCycle finished on 6 December 2023. Over 48 weeks, the program collected a total of 53,470kgs of reusable home items. These items were donated to various charities and relief organisations. This initiative promoted the reuse and circularity of items.

Residents can drop off as many items as needed. Please ensure items are bagged. When dropping off clothing and e-waste, please do not jam the items into the chute or place items on or next to the trailer/hub.

Items not accepted

Toys, furniture, large electrical appliances (such as fridges and stoves), soiled clothing, mattresses, books, doonas, pillows, bric-a-brac (household items like photo frames, glassware and kitchenware).

If the trailer or hub is overfull or there is dumping

A sensor will automatically alert the collection company to empty the trailer/hub. Should there be any issues or illegal dumping please call the 24-hour hotline on 1300 687 261.

Why we provide these services

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 and remains one of the top five items incorrectly put in the recycling bins, while electronic waste was banned from landfill as of 1 July 2019.

We are committed to waste reduction and work with partners like HomeCycle to expand opportunities to easily reuse and recycle items. We still encourage donations of reusable items to local charities, although call ahead to see if the item is accepted or needed prior to donating.
