Our annual hard waste collection starts Monday 3 July and finishes on Friday 11 August.
The annual hard waste collection offers you a way to get rid of unwanted hard waste without going to the tip or hiring a skip bin.
The annual collection costs more than $1.3 million.
Hard waste will be collected from different residential areas of Brimbank on different weeks throughout the collection period.
You'll get a brochure in your letterbox about two weeks before the collection in your area, telling you the specific collection week and details about the service.
The material for collection must be on the nature strip by 6am on the Monday of the collection week. Don't be put anything out any earlier than the weekend before your scheduled collection.
If you're worried you haven't got the information brochure, contact Brimbank Customer Service on 9249 4000.
A copy of the brochure and details of collection weeks are available on our Hard Rubbish page.
This project, coupled with a further $340,000 investment in lighting on oval one, which is also underway, means sports clubs will be able to use Bon Thomas Reserve all year for the first time ever.
Works on the change rooms are expected to be finished by mid-March 2018. The sports lighting installation is estimated to be finished in November 2017.
Sports and Recreation Victoria has contributed $100,000 funding towards the construction of the Bon Thomas Reserve change room construction.
Currently, Bon Thomas Reserve has mainly been used in summer by Deer Park and Sunshine cricket clubs, and for pre-season training.
Throughout winter there’s only been capacity to support a social winter cricket competition.
Brimbank’s 2017/2018 Draft Budget, which is subject to adoption, includes a further $1.7 million for the redevelopment of the second sportsground, construction of a synthetic cricket wicket and additional floodlighting.
There’s also a further $380,000 flagged for the sealing of the existing gravel carpark and installation of car park lighting, plus $220,000 for construction of a barbecue, drinking fountain, access paths and park furniture.
The Bon Thomas Reserve change room and sportsground lighting projects are funded under Brimbank’s 2016/2017 Budget.
Come along and celebrate the upgrade of Selwyn Park in Albion with a community day – including a sausage sizzle, children’s face painting, and a musician.
The $400,000 upgrade includes new play and gym equipment, a circuit path, furniture and shelter. Selwyn Park is located at 61A Selwyn Street, Albion.
