Hard Waste Collection

Each property with a Council-provided kerbside garbage service is entitled to one Hard Waste Collection of up to two cubic metres of items each financial year.

Make a booking by calling Wonthaggi Recyclers on (03) 5672 1933. The standard service fee is $ $60 including GST and $35 for Pension and Health Care Card Holders.

Things to Consider
  • Collections can be made for any time of year; however there are limited collection days available in January.
  • A maximum of two (2) mattresses can be picked up for an additional fee.
    • Mattress Recycling Fee: Single Bed - $10 each; Double Bed or larger - $20 each
    • Note: The Mattress Recycling Fee only applies to mattresses with metal inner-springs. Foam-only mattresses can be collected as a routine hard waste item within the two cubic metre allowance.
  • Where possible, hard waste items should stay inside your property boundary for collection (for example, in your front yard). If it is necessary to have your hard waste collected from a nature strip, the items must not be placed on the nature strip earlier than 48 hours before the agreed collection date.
  • If the load exceeds two cubic meters, the excess items will not be collected.

  • Whitegoods and appliances (such as refrigerators, ovens and stoves, washing machines, dishwashers and small appliances)

  • Children’s toys, kitchenware and most common household items
  • Timber pieces less than 1.8 metres in length (nails must be removed or flattened)
What Can't Be Collected
